PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Two pedestrians were struck by a vehicle in the Strip District.

The accident happened just before 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

KDKA’s Stephanie Watson reports a woman driving down Smallman Street hit a couple in the crosswalk at 15th Street.

Ed Snee is friends of the victims and works in the neighborhood.

“I’ve been here for about three years and everyday it’s dangerous walking across the intersection,” he said.

A doctor was near the accident scene and tried to help the pedestrians.

The female pedestrian may have suffered a broken leg. The man might have a spinal injury, according to Snee.
