ELMONT, NY — Four high school sophomores were struck by a vehicle in Elmont on Wednesday afternoon just after they left school, police said.

Two of the victims - both girls  - were critically injured and one teen was airlifted to a local hospital, officials said.

The other teens - a boy and a girl - suffered injuries that are not life threatening.

They were hit around 3:30 p.m. near the intersection of Elmont Road and Dutch Broadway.

Four vehicles were involved in a collision, police said. One car went off the road and hit a tree, a police and the four teens before it overturned.

"I hear, like big noise, like two car crashes together," said nearby store owner Sunny Brajabati. "It was a crazy scene, like some kids are running. We went outside and we see it, it was horrible."

Nassau County Legislator Carrié Solages was at the scene. He said there was a retired nurse there treating the teens.
