By , Columbian Web Editor

Two pedestrians were critically injured Sunday afternoon when they were struck by a vehicle on Lucia Falls Road, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

A white 1997 Chevrolet Blazer was eastbound about 4:30 p.m. on Northeast Lucia Falls Road near Moulton Falls Regional Park when it left the southern roadway edge and struck three pedestrians, according to witness statements and a sheriff’s office investigation.

The trio were walking eastbound together on the shoulder of the road. Two of the three pedestrians were critically hurt and transported to area hospitals.

The sheriff’s office and Clark County Fire District 13, with assistance from Clark County fire districts 3 and 10, responded. North Country Emergency Medical Service and American Medical Response each transported a patient.

“Impairment was not suspected to be a factor in the collision,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. The Sheriff’s Office Traffic Unit responded to the scene and will continue the investigation.

The identities of neither the pedestrians nor the driver have been released.
