MONTCLAIR, NJ - Four pedestrians were struck in two separate incidents in Montclair on Friday night, say police officials. Within hours of one another, the two pedestrian-involved accidents had occurred.

Lt. David O'Dowd of the Montclair Police Department said that at approximately 11:52p.m., a 29-year-old female and a 55-year-old man, were struck as they attempted to cross the street. The single motor vehicle was traveling westbound near 401 Bloomfield Avenue. 

"The pedestrians were attempting to cross Bloomfield Avenue in the middle of the block, away from an intersection or crosswalk," he said.   O'Dowd stated that both pedestrians were seriously injured.  They were both transported to the hospital by ambulance.

"The pedestrians were not in a crosswalk at the time of the collision," O'Dowd added.  He said that both pedestrians had complained of pain and were treated by emergency medical technicians at the scene. 

Both of these incidents are under investigation.
