The call came in just after 6:30 a.m. at Alameda Street and Texan Trail. Officers on scene said a woman was trying to turn left on Alameda St. from Texan Trail. Three people were crossing Alameda in the crosswalk at the time and two were hit by the woman, according to officers on scene. Officials said the pedestrians had the right-of-way.
