The Syracuse Police Department is investigating a motor vehicle/pedestrian crash that occurred at about 1:15 PM this afternoon on the 900 block of East Genesee St.


Police responded to the scene after 911 received a call that two pedestrians had just been struck by a pick-up truck.  Officers arrived on the scene and located two female pedestrians who had been struck while they were walking eastbound along the south edge of the roadway.


 Both females were taken to Upstate Hospital where they were both listed in critical condition.  The initial investigation determined that the Mazda pick-up truck was headed westbound on East Genesee St. when the male driver veered to the left and struck the pedestrians before coming to rest in a snow bank.  The cause of the crash is still under investigation and no tickets have been issued at this time.
