Two teenagers were taken in separate helicopters to Maryland Shock Trauma Center after being hit by a vehicle near the Earleigh Heights Fire Station in Severna Park Tuesday night, said Fire Battalion Chief Steve Thompson.

At about 8:45 p.m., a 17-year-old female and an 18-year-old male were hit in the 100 block of Ritchie Highway, Thompson said. The girl's injuries are life-threatening, the boy's are not, he said.

It was not a hit and run, Thompson said. A carnival was taking place near the fire station, he said. No other information was immediately available.
