ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Two women are in critical condition Tuesday morning after being struck by a car while walking down the street.
According to authorities, the two women, both 25, were walking around 11p.m. Monday night near the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and Deer Street when they were hit by a vehicle.
Police say the women were taken to the hospital after the accident, and are expected to survive their injuries.
After an investigation, it was determined that no criminal act was committed during the incident because the driver, who did not leave the scene until officers arrived, was unable to see the women.
Officers are not sure yet if the women were hit due to a lack of lighting in the area or if they were walking in the middle of the street.
