Teen hit crossing Harrison Twp. street suffers serious but not life-threatening injuries

A teenager hit by an SUV while crossing the street early Friday was taken to Miami Valley Hospital with injuries that were serious, but not life-threatening.

Emergency crews were called at 12:25 a.m. to the intersection of Shoup Mill Road and North Main Street in Harrison Twp. on the report of a pedestrian being hit by a vehicle.

The juvenile hit by a Dodge Durango traveling east on Shoup Mill Road was walking across the street outside of the crosswalk, according to the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office.

Half an hour later, a deputy investigating a suspicious vehicle with possible runaway juveniles inside responded to Walgreens located at the same intersection of Shoup Mill Road and North Main Street.

One of the juveniles got into the vehicle and put it in reverse. The vehicle then hit the deputy’s cruiser. The driver was taken into custody and another juvenile ran away, according to the sheriff’s office.

Minor damage was reported to both vehicles.
