JAMESTOWN -- Two motorists were charged Monday morning after two unrelated accidents in which pedestrians suffered minor injuries.

A Jamestown High School student on her way to class just after 8 a.m. was struck by a four-wheel-drive vehicle in front of the school. Police said Kirsten D. Allen, 18, of Cherry Street was crossing East Second Street when she was hit by a vehicle driven by Mary Giuffre, 36, of Sinclairville.

Miss Allen was treated in the school nurse's office, then taken by her

father to WCA Hospital, where she was treated and released.

Ms. Giuffre, who had dropped off another student and was pulling away from the curb at the time of the accident, was charged with failure to obey a traffic sign.

About 90 minutes later, Bertram L. LaBelle of Shaver Street was crossing Cole Avenue, at Foote Avenue, when he was hit by a pickup truck driven by William R. Crane, 53, of Collins Avenue, police said.

LaBelle was treated in WCA Hospital and released.

Crane was charged with failure to use due care.
