Cab hits six teens walking to school

SIX students were injured - two seriously - on their way to school yesterday morning when a cab collided with a car and crashed into pedestrians on a sidewalk in the Pudong New Area.

Two students were still unconscious in the intensive care unit of East Hospital: a 15-year-old with a life-threatening brain hemorrhage, and another with multiple bone fractures, said Wang Yingying, a hospital official.

Wang said the other four students suffered broken bones or bruises and were in stable condition.

Two with minor injuries left the hospital yesterday morning.

The two drivers and the passengers in the two cars were not injured in the accident.

The cause of the accident was under investigation.

According to Pudong police, the blue cab from Haibo Taxi Co collided with a white car at 7:20am at the crossing of Taolin and Zhangyang roads.

The cab lost control after the collision, ran onto a nearby sideway and crashed into the students who were waiting at a red light.

"The cab continued running after hitting the students until it crashed against a concrete wall guarding a greenery area," said a witness surnamed Li.

Li said both of the cars were running fast at the crossing and neither would make space for the other.

Among the six injured students, age 15 to 17, three are freshmen at Shanghai Pharmaceutical School, two are students at The Second Light Industry School, and one goes to Jincai Middle School.
