Police say the pedestrians, a 42-year-old man and the 39-year-old woman, were struck after crossing the street southbound, with no crosswalks or lights. Unable to see them, the driver, a 32-year-old woman, collided with them.

The male pedestrian, who sustained a head injury and a broken leg, has been hospitalized in life-threatening condition. The injuries of the woman, who also suffered a broken leg, are not considered life threatening.

No arrest has been made in the case.
