TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Leon County Sheriff's Office is investigating after two men were hit by a car on West Tennessee Street.

LCSO responded to the accident at about 3:00 p.m. Wednesday and said the crash happened at the intersection of West Tennessee Street and Tennessee Capital Boulevard.

Deputies determined that a blue 2002 GMC Envoy was turning east onto West Tennessee Street, when the Envoy hit two 53-year-old men.

According to deputies, the Envoy had the right of way at the time of the crash.

The men suffered non-life threatening injuries from the crash and are still in the hospital at this time.

Two people were hit by a car Wednesday on West Tennessee Street near a busy intersection on the city's southwest side.

We know two people were hit as they walked along West Tennessee Street about a half a mile west of Capital Circle Southeast.

There was a bag on the side of the road, but it's contents were thrown to basically the median.

It looked like there was a hat and some clothes, each have been marked as evidence.

The car that was involved in the accident was still on scene, but we couldn't see any major damage on the SUV from behind the crime scene tape.

The Leon County Sheriff's Office said this case has been assigned to the Special Victims Unit.

They were out there for about two hours, processing the scene, and helping traffic flow along West Tennessee.

We were told both the pedestrians who were hit are being treated at the hospital and right now investigators can't say the extent of the injuries, but no one was killed.
