Two high school students were hospitalized after a drunk driving truck crash that occurred while they were crossing the street at school. The accident occurred Monday evening, at about 6:30 p.m., at Cleveland High School.

School officials state that the students were walking back to the school after getting food from a nearby restaurant. The students were crossing East Houston Street when a white truck owned by Hunton Train Company struck them as they were walking in the crosswalk.

The students, a freshman and a sophomore, were both seriously injured, and were life-flighted to a nearby hospital. The 10th grader had a broken leg and a broken jaw, as well as soreness and bruising. The 9th grader injured his ankle. The students are now in stable condition.

The driver, a 32-year-old man, was arrested for driving while intoxicated, and charged with felony third-degree intoxication assault with a motor vehicle. He was taken into custody the following evening.
