Two boys were struck by a vehicle and critically injured Tuesday near Long Beach Polytechnic High School, police said.

Paramedics sent to Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue and 15th Street about 7 a.m. transported the boys to a hospital in critical but stable condition, said Jennifer De Prez of the Long Beach Police Department.

The motorist, whose name was not released, remained at the scene and cooperated with the investigation, De Prez said.

“Drugs or alcohol is not believed to be a factor at this time … (and) the investigation is ongoing,” she said.
