MONROE, Ga. — Two pedestrians were struck by a car Saturday night in downtown Monroe.

Battalion Chief Andrew Dykes of the Monroe Fire Department said the injuries were not life-threatening.
Walton EMS transferred both patients to hospitals to Piedmont Walton Hospital.
It was the second time a pedestrian was struck downtown in as many days. A 23-year-old Winder woman was in serious condition at Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center on Saturday morning after being hit by a car Friday afternoon at West Spring Street at Wayne Street.
The intersection of West Spring and Wayne has a crosswalk and traffic signal, while there is neither where North Lumpkin meets East Spring.
The roadway was reopened within an hour.
