REPORT Saugus XC Athletes Hit By Car While On Training Run

Two sophomore members of the Saugus High School cross country team are in stable condition after they were struck by a vehicle earlier Monday, according to a Los Angeles news report.

According to updated reporting by Los Angeles Fox 11, the athletes were on a scheduled training run when they were hit at the intersection of Alamogordo and Bouquet Canyon roads in Santa Clarita, not far from the school. 

The athletes were taken to Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital in Valencia where they required surgery and were in stable condition, the news channel reported on its website, citing officials.

The students' names had not been released, Fox 11 reported. 

The station reported that the driver, who reportedly ran a red light, remained at the scene and spoke with investigators. 

The website displayed an aerial photo showing a white vehicle with a cracked windshield at the scene of the incident. 

In October of 2020, Temecula cross country runners, most who were students at Great Oak High School, were struck by a truck while on a training run

Austin Elkins, the most seriously hurt in that incident, was a regular contributor on the Wolfpack varsity this past cross country season, including taking the line for the Division 1 runner-up team at both the Southern Section Finals and at the State Meet.
