A man and woman were killed Sunday when they were struck by a car in a Lancaster roadway, authorities said.
The crash was reported at 1 a.m. on Avenue J near Elm Avenue, Sgt. Michael Politano of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station said.
Preliminary information indicated “Two pedestrians walked into the lanes of travel from Elm Avenue into the path of the Chevy Cruz. The driver was unable to avoid the pedestrians and struck them both,” Sgt. D. Jennings of the Lancaster Sheriff’s Station said. The man may have been intoxicated but it is not known whether the woman was impaired.
The two pronounced dead at the scene, Politano said. The car’s driver stopped and called 911.
The crash remains under investigation, he said.
