WEST JORDAN — Two children were hospitalized after being struck by a car while trick or treating Monday night. Authorities said the two girls were crossing the street near 6475 South 4800 West (Cougar Lane) when they where struck by a vehicle driven by a female motorist.

Authorities said the teenage girls — a seventh grader and a ninth grader — were wearing dark-colored clothing and not in a designated crosswalk at the time. Police say poor visibility in the area may have contributed to the incident, but speeding does not appear to have been a factor.

One girl was taken to Primary Children's Medical Center, while the other was taken to Intermountain Medical Center — both with facial and bone injuries that do not appear to be life threatening.
