Two pedestrians in their 80s were injured after a car hit them as they crossed a downtown street on Monday morning. The collision took place around 9 a.m. at the intersection of rues Sherbrooke and Guy in the Ville-Marie borough. An 83-year-old man suffered severe head injuries and was rushed to the hospital, while a woman in her 80s was also hurt after being thrown to the ground.

"The pedestrians were probably crossing during a red light, so the driver couldn't avoid the collision," said Montreal police spokesperson Raphaël Bergeron.

He said the vehicle was heading southbound on chemin de la Côte-des-Neiges when it hit the pedestrians on rue Guy near rue Sherbrooke.

"The man suffered serious head injuries, but he was conscious when being taken to the hospital," said Bergeron.

"His condition is considered stable, but we're waiting for his results from the hospital."

The woman in her 80s who accompanied the man was treated for less severe injuries by paramedics in the street near the scene of the incident.

The intersection of rues Guy and Sherbrooke is closed to traffic.
