Two Pleasant Hill Middle School girls who were hit by a car while walking to school this morning are expected to survive their injuries, Pleasant Hill police Lt. Dan Connelly said. The girls, both 13 years old, had been walking on an East Bay Municipal Utility District trail and were crossing Oak Park Boulevard in the crosswalk between Eccleston and Manor avenues when they were hit by a blue Chrysler PT Cruiser shortly before 8 a.m.  The woman driving the car stopped and cooperated with police.  Staff members from Pleasant Hill Middle School, which is about a block from where the accident happened, responded as well and helped police contact the girls’ parents.  The two girls were taken by ambulance to John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek with serious, but not life-threatening, injuries, Connelly said.  The cause of the crash is still under investigation, but so far there is no indication that the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
