Two teenage girls who fell asleep while sunbathing on a quiet rural road in Pennsylvania were struck by a car yesterday. The 13-year-old pals were airlifted to a nearby hospital, and are expected to survive. They were hit by a car driven by a cousin of one of the girls. He had just stopped at a stop sign, and struck the girls as he turned the corner. He was questioned by police and released, reports WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh. (More Pennsylvania stories.)
