UPDATED: Pedestrians at fault for accident in Lewisville
The pedestrians are in stable condition.
LEWISVILLE At approximately 7:30 Monday night, two pedestrians were hit while crossing the street in the 1000 block of Fox Avenue in Lewisville.
Capt. Jay Powell said two CareFlite helicopters were sent to the scene and transported the victims to an area hospital. He said there are no fatalities. The driver of the vehicle that hit the pedestrians remained at the scene as police investigate the incident.
"We don't know right now if speed or alcohol was a factor, but with injuries like this, they'll usually draw blood from the driver," Powell said. "We don't know right now if the pedestrians were crossing at a crosswalk."
UPDATE: Police said Tuesday that the two pedestrians who were hit Monday night are at fault for the accident.
On Monday at approximately 6:45 p.m., Lai Thawng and Sang Hrin of Lewisville were struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross Fox Avenue in the 1000 block where there is no crosswalk.
