MERRILL - A car going too fast hit two teenagers in Merrill.

It happened around 3:30 p.m. Thursday.

A teenage driver tried to brake for the two teens at the intersection of 3rd
Street and Pier Street.

The roads were slippery and the car skidded more than 80 feet....hitting the teens.

They ended up on the hood of the car.

No one was injured but the teens were taken to Good Samaritan Hospital as a
precaution.
