An elderly man and woman were both hospitalized after they were hit by a sedan while crossing the street in a crosswalk in downtown McHenry Friday evening.

The McHenry Township Fire Protection District and McHenry Police Department responded around 6:30 p.m. Friday to the area of Front Street and Main Street for a vehicle crash with injuries.

McHenry Deputy Chief of Police Thomas Walsh said a 2009 Chevrolet Impala was traveling northbound on Front Street at Main Street.

The Chevrolet struck two pedestrians as they were crossing Front Street within the crosswalk, Walsh said.

The pedestrians, a 71-year-old man and a 65-year-old woman, were transported to Northwestern Medicine Hospital in McHenry.

An initial report indicated one of the victims was unconscious and the second was up and walking following the collision.

Firefighters reported the victim, who had the more serious injuries, was down in the roadway when emergency crews arrived.

A LifeNet helicopter was requested to be put on standby but the helicopter was unable to fly due to weather conditions.

Walsh said the two victims suffered injuries that were not life-threatening.

The driver of the vehicle, Kevin Martines Beristain, 18, of McHenry, was cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian within a crosswalk.

He was released at the scene. Walsh said there was no indication that alcohol or drugs were a factor in the incident.
