Houston, TX (1/22/2020) – Two people are now hospitalized after getting struck by a car while they were helping a stalled vehicle.

The accident happened Tuesday night around midnight near Holland Avenue. According to police, a stalled vehicle in the main lanes of East Freeway was being assisted by a wrecker and two pedestrians when a vehicle came and struck the pedestrians.

The two people were taken to a nearby hospital in critical condition.

Police say that the driver of the fourth vehicle did not see the stopped cars in the roadway.
