A pair of Palm Beach County teens were badly hurt when a car rammed into them as they were leaving school.
The female high school students, who are 16-years-old, were standing near the intersection of Linton Blvd and Congress Avenue with two friends, as a crash involving four vehicles occurred, according to witnesses and the Palm Beach County Police.

The other three students, a boy and two girls who, suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
