A 12-year-old boy and his 6-year-old brother remained hospitalized in serious condition Friday, the day after they were struck by a car on a Payson street.

The 12-year-old boy was riding his bicycle with his younger brother standing on the foot pegs on the back of the bike when the accident occurred around 8 p.m. Thursday near 1400 South and 930 West.

Wright said the boys were turning left from 1400 South onto 930 West when a full-size, northbound SUV struck them.

Police were investigating whether the boys may have run a stop sign just prior to the accident.

The SUV appeared to be traveling at the posted speed limit at the time of the crash, police said.
