Two pedestrians were struck crossing E. 4th Street Saturday night, and now the Delta Police Department is looking for information on the driver who left the scene.
The pedestrians, a 35-year-old female from Paonia and a 50-year-old male from Delta, were in the crosswalk with the walk signal when they were hit by a white or silver colored car. They were headed south on Main Street, and believe the vehicle was also southbound because they never saw it coming. They were three-quarters of the way across the street when they were hit.
Both individuals suffered serious, but non life-threatening injuries and were transported to Delta County Memorial Hospital. The Delta Police Department declined to name the individuals, citing department policy concerning victims of a crime.
Investigating officers are interested in hearing from anyone who witnessed the accident, which occurred at 6:24 p.m. Jan. 9. Please call the Delta Police Department at 874-7676 or Crimestoppers at 874-8810 with information that could help identify the driver.
