Two gym teachers were taken to the hospital after being struck by a car in South Windsor on Wednesday morning.
Police said it happened just before 8 a.m. in the driveway of South Windsor High School.
According to police, Keith Huppe, 19, of South Windsor, was driving his 1998 Volkswagen Jetta in the right lane of the driveway. Huppe was dropping his sister off at school when he struck the teachers.
Huppe, who is not a student at the high school, has been arrested for possession of alcohol in his car while underage and his license was previously suspended, according to Department of Motor Vehicles.
The teachers have been identified as Jim Warnock and Brendan McClay, according to police. McClay is also the boy's basketball coach.
"There was a report for one of them - loss of consciousness, possible head injury. It was serious enough that we called for Life Star," according to Chief Matthew Reed of the South Windsor police. "Life Star was too far out for immediate transport, so ground transport took them to Hartford Hospital."
Warnock is in serious condition and McClay is in good condition as of 4:30 p.m., according to hospital officials.
"It is heart-breaking," said Geri Shuler of South Windsor. "I hope they are OK."
No students were injured during the crash.
According to police, traffic investigators are looking at all factors, including whether sun glare played a role.
"We don't know anything about the speed at the time of the crash," Reed said. "But all of that information will be put together as part of the investigation."
