The Virginia State Police is investigating a motor vehicle crash involving two pedestrians in Blairs.

The crash occurred on Tuesday, June 18 at 2:30 p.m. on Route 29 Business, near Livestock Road in Blairs. 

Two male juveniles were walking beside the roadway when they were struck by a 2016 Nissan Sentra.  The Nissan was traveling north on Business 29, when the vehicle ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a 14 year old, male juvenile and a 15 year old male juvenile.  Both juveniles were transported to the hospital in Danville with life threatening injuries.  The vehicle and the driver remained at the scene of the accident.

The investigation has found the juveniles were not in the roadway when they were struck, and that driver distraction may be a contributing factor.

There have been no charges placed at this time, and the matter has been referred to the Pittsylvania Commonwealth Attorney. 

The Virginia State Police Crash Reconstruction Team was called to assist with the investigation.

The crash remains under investigation.
