FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- A 74-year-old driver from Elmwood Park sideswiped a couple's car and then hit both of them with her sedan as they crossed a Fair Lawn street Friday night, authorities said.

The driver was headed south on 17th Street toward Broadway when her 2016 Nissan hit the couple's parked Toyota and then struck them as they were walking to a nearby residence, Sgt. Brian Metzler told Daily Voice.

The woman, 25, who lives in Fair Lawn, suffered a significant leg injury, he said.

Her male companion -- 27, from Washingtonville, NY -- had back and injuries, Metzler said.

Both were taken to St. Joseph's Regional Medical Center in Paterson.

No summonses were issued following an investigation, the sergeant said.
