Two elderly women are in hospital after being hit by a car while using a crosswalk Tuesday night in Trail.
Police were called to the residential area of 2nd Ave and Robertson St just after 7 pm.
One victim is recovering from broken bones at KBRH and the other was transported to Kelowna Hospital with severe head injuries.
West Kootenay Traffic Services Sgt John Ferguson says a witness across the street didn’t even see the pair of women until they were hit.
