Car Hits Two Victims on Broadway, Both in Serious Condition

A car hit two pedestrians near 99 Gas on Broadway Wednesday night.

UPDATE: Police confirm a female victim has died in the accident.

Original story: Scanner reports indicate two pedestrians were hit by a car near 22 Broadway, disrupting traffic and causing serious injuries. 

One witness on Facebook said she saw two people lying on the street at the scene. Responders also dispatched a third ambulance for the uninjured but "emotional" driver of the vehicle. 

One victim was taken to Mass General Hospital with a "trauma alert." The condition of the second victim was unclear. 

Lt. Det. Marc Gatcomb said that the victims were aged 50 and 45, from Malden.

Avoid the area, as the scene has caused traffic disruptions. 

More information to come as it becomes available.

I removed your comment because it referred to the claim in the original troublesome post. You didn't really do anything wrong but I just wanted to purge the comments section of any references. Hope that makes sense.

These situations can get tricky for a variety of reasons. So far this information has not been made public by the PD which could be for any number of valid reasons. We just have to wait and see.

Heard the victims were 45 and 50 years of age just a moment ago.

@ Karin... I attended the Old Linden School the old old brick building next to the fire station. I remember there was a girl who was hit 1st grade. I still remember her name. Many deaths occured on Broadway auto and perdestrians.
