2 pedestrians crossing the street hit by vehicle in Eden Prairie

There have been a rash of vehicle-pedestrian crashes in the metro to start 2019.

Two pedestrians were hit by a vehicle in Eden Prairie on Tuesday morning. 

According to Eden Prairie Police Department, the accident happened at 7:41 a.m. when the pedestrians were crossing Westgate Drive at Eden Prairie Road. Fortunately, both people suffered non-life-threatening injuries. 

The driver was not impaired and cooperated with police at the scene. 

"Let’s work together to prevent this from happening again! Drivers, take extra time at intersections and be aware of pedestrians and bicyclists – with limited ice and snow on the ground, more people are out using sidewalks and trails," Eden Prairie PD posted to Facebook

"Likewise, if you are traveling by foot or on bike near a busy roadway, do your best to make eye contact with drivers and be sure they see you before entering a roadway in front of a vehicle."

The Twin Cities has had a series of deadly vehicle-pedestrian crashes to start 2019. 

In Roseville, two people were killed while crossing the street on Jan. 3. 

The next day, Jan. 4, two people were hit in St. Paul, resulting in the death of a 19-year-old woman.

Another pedestrian died in a hit-and-run crash in Inver Grove Heights on Jan. 5.
