MONROE, Ga. — A car struck two pedestrians overnight in front of Walmart.

That makes five people hit by cars while crossing Monroe streets between Friday afternoon and Tuesday night, with two of the people seriously hurt.

In the most recent case, the Monroe Fire Department and Walton EMS were dispatched to West Spring Street in front of Walmart at about 11:30 p.m. Tuesday.

The people hit were identified as a 27-year-old woman and 42-year-old man, both from Loganville.

The driver was a 42-year-old Monroe woman.
