The California Highway Patrol says that two boys suffered major injuries as they were hit while trying to push a stalled car out of the No. 1 lane of Highway 101 in San Luis Obispo on Saturday night.
Michael Cash, 17, of Nipomo, suffered multiple fractures and Cody Tyler Oakley, 17, of Santa Maria, broke his leg in the 9:45 p.m. crash near Santa Rosa Street, according to a CHP press release.
The Pontiac Bonneville that Cash and Oakley were traveling in had crashed into a stroller in the northbound No. 1 lane, the CHP said, stalling the car.
They and other people were trying to push the car out of the lane when Niesha Bree Diaz, 20, of Arroyo Grande swerved her Saturn Ion to the left trying unsuccessfully to avoid hitting them, according to the CHP.
Her car first hit Cash, and then hit the Pontiac, the CHP said. The Pontiac then struck Oakley, the CHP said.
Both boys were treated at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, according to the CHP.
