ISANTI, Minn — Isanti Police say two students were treated for minor injuries Monday morning after being hit by a vehicle near 8th Avenue NE and Heritage Boulevard.

Officers responded to the area just after 7:20 a.m. after getting reports that two pedestrians were struck just north of the Isanti Intermediate School.

The students walked to the ambulance on their own to be transported for treatment, police say. The driver who struck the students stopped and is cooperating with investigators.

Isanti Police have not released any other details about what led up to the collision.

In a message posted on the Isanti Intermediate School website, the district confirmed two of its students were hit by a "slow-moving private vehicle" while crossing a road.
