(KMOV) -- Two people were struck by a car whose driver appears to have overdosed near Normandy in North St. Louis County.

Police said 51-year-old Marsha Robinson and 25-year-old Cevnna Clerk were severely injured in a vehicle accident at Lucas and Hunt and Natural Bridge. The two women were near a bus stop when they were hit by the vehicle.

Police said 37-year-old Gary Farrel of Florissant, was found unconscious and not breathing with a heroin needle in their arm in an apparent overdose. Witnesses said the car was going in a "crazy" pattern.

Both women suffered injuries to their legs. Robinson is suspect of having a severed leg and Clerk was reported to have two broken legs and other serious injuries. One of the victims was flown to a hospital by helicopter. One of the women is said to be in her 20s and the other in her early 40s or late 30s.

Farrel was revived at the scene and taken to a hospital. Police said he agreed to submit to a drug test and will likely face charges.

Police said the car was going westbound on Natural Bridge when it crossed over traffic and drove into a shelter and stopped in a parking lot.

Investigators were at the scene. The accident caused traffic to shut down while the helicopter landed.
