SAN FRANCISCO - The California Highway Patrol said a group of about 15 kids were attempting to cross southbound U.S. 101 near an SFO Airport off-ramp, when one of them was struck by a vehicle and injured.
The boy was struck by a rental car, a white Chrysler 300, CHP said. The collision was reported just before 7 p.m.
CHP said the group was crossing the freeway and the young people were headed to a motel. When the boy was struck, the group scattered, although one person stayed behind to help his friend.
The boy suffered a broken leg and major head injuries. He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The CHP did not say if the driver of the rental car stayed at the location after the collision.
The crash blocked lanes for some time, but all lanes have since reopened. There are residual delays.
This is a developing news story.
