Teens fight for lives after BOP crashes

Two teens hit on Bay of Plenty roads over the weekend continue to fight for their lives.

A 17-year-old mother and a 16-year-old pedestrian were taken to Waikato Hospital after being hit in separate road incidents on Saturday.

A hospital spokeswoman said today the pair remained in critical conditions in the intensive care unit.

The 17-year-old was hit by a car allegedly driven by her partner after attending a birthday party early on Saturday morning.

Later that morning, the 16-year-old was struck by a bus carrying tourists on Old Taupo Road. Police said he suffered serious head injuries.
