OREGON CITY, Ore. -- Two young sisters were hurt when they were struck by a car on an Oregon City street Thursday, police said.

The girls, 6-year-old Willa and 10-year-old Hadley Stewart, were struck at 10th Street and Main Street just after noon, said spokesman Brandon Paxton of Clackamas Fire.

Both girls were taken by ambulance to Oregon Health & Science University hospital. Willa (pictured above) suffered a broken clavicle and pelvis and several broken ribs. She was listed in serious condition.

Hadley was treated for a broken arm and released from the hospital Thursday night. Their 14-year-old sister was with the girls at the time, but she was not hit by the vehicle.

The driver, 86-year-old Monte Thoen of Milwaukie, was not injured. He stayed at the scene and talked with investigators, Paxton said.

"I heard some screaming and yelling and I turned around, I saw the bodies fly around," said Thoen.

"Real sorry that I did that," he added. "I got some of my own grandkids and I just hate to see little guys, little people like that get hurt."
