Two People Hit By Car In Valley

Two people were hit by a car early this morning in Spokane Valley at Evergreen Road and Mallon Avenue. As of 8:00 this morning, the northbound, right hand lane of Evergreen is blocked, and Mallon is blocked east of the intersection. The couple were taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center with serious injuries.

Remember folks, if you're walking or driving, you need to be a lot more vigilant now that it gets light later. It's hard for drivers to see you if you don't wear light colors when walking. And this morning's fog not only cut down sight distance, but also made some roadways slick, which means it's hard to stop in a hurry.
