Two women were injured Friday morning when they were struck by a hit-and-run driver in a parking lot, police said.

One woman was taken to a local hospital by ambulance and the other was driven to a hospital by a witness. Their conditions were not available.

Police on Friday continued to search for the driver of the pickup truck.

The incident occurred shortly before 5:30 a.m. at 1525 E. Berry St.

The women, ages 50 and 40, were in the parking lot when they were hit by the pickup, police said.

Hours later, two other pedestrians were hit by a vehicle near downtown Fort Worth in an unrelated incident. Both suffered serious injuries. One man suffered a broken jaw and the other man suffered a head injury and other broken bones, police said.

The second accident involved a distracted driver and was reported shortly before 8 a.m. at Samuels Avenue and Cold Springs Road, police said. Police did not say if the driver faces any charges.

The names of the victims involved in both accidents weren’t released Friday.
