2 pedestrians hit by vehicle at Lauderdale Lakes gas station

LAUDERDALE LAKES, FLA. (WSVN) - Two pedestrians have been transported to two different hospitals after they were struck by a vehicle in the parking lot of a gas station in Lauderdale Lakes.

The incident occurred at a Shell gas station located in the corner of State Road 7 and West Oakland Park Boulevard, at around 1 p.m., Tuesday.

According to Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies, a man driving a black Honda Civic struck the two pedestrians when they were standing or walking near the parking lot of the Shell station at the northwest corner.

Cellphone video shot by a witness working nearby showed a man and woman lying on the street where the incident happened as witnesses surrounded them to help.

The driver who hit them remained on the scene.

“I just came in, basically, for my shift, and I just saw that big noise, some shot of heavy stuff falling to the ground,” Anil Kumar, a witness who works at the Shell gas station, said. “I guess it was from the car got hit from the lady, basically, and then when I ran outside, the lady was completely on the ground, and her whole face was bleeding.”

The woman, believed to be in her 40s, sustained a head injury and was transported to Broward Health in serious condition.

Another pedestrian, a man believed to be in his 20s, wasn’t seriously injured. He sustained some injuries to his lower legs and was taken to Florida Medical Center.
