COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Two pedestrians were injured after they were hit by a car in the area of N. Academy Boulevard and Dublin Boulevard Monday night.

The call came in around 9:44 p.m., according to authorities with the Stetson Hills division.

Police say two pedestrians were using the crosswalk to cross the intersection but were not able to make it through the crossing before southbound Academy traffic got the green light.

According to authorities, a Ford van entered the intersection on the green light and hit both pedestrians.

Both pedestrians were injured and transported to a local hospital for treatment.

The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.

Police say neither speed nor driver impairment are considered to be factors in this incident.

Both directions of Dublin and two lanes of southbound N. Academy were closed for about two hours while officers completed their investigation.
