LOWELL -- Two men who were walking on Gorham Street under the Spaghettiville Bridge, where sidewalks were not yet cleared of snow, were struck by a car Sunday night, and at least one of them appeared to be seriously injured.
Emergency crews were called to 1012 Gorham St., the parking lot of a local liquor store, at 8:06 p.m., after a 911 caller reported a pedestrian was struck by a car.
Crews arrived to find two pedestrians down and suffering from injuries. Both men appeared to be middle-aged, but they were treated and taken to the hospital before police could get their ID's, so their exact ages were not immediately available.
One of the men was conscious and leaning back against a firefighter while complaining of neck pain.
The driver of the Ford sedan that struck them declined to comment. The windshield of his car was shattered by the impact.
Police said it appears the men were walking on Gorham Street and that the driver was unable to stop by the time he noticed them.
It was too early in the investigation for police to say whether the driver will be cited.
Police closed Gorham Street at Moore Street and called in officers from the Lowell Police Traffic Bureau to reconstruct the crash.
Sidewalks under the bridge, where the men were walking, were not yet cleared.
