A collision between two cars at the southeast corner of Raymond Ave. and West California Blvd. shortly after noon Wednesday sent one vehicle careening into a crosswalk where it struck two pedestrians.

The car came to a stop on top of one of them, a very elderly woman.

Pasadena Police Lt Pete Hettema said the woman, whom he estimated to be in her late eighties, was extricated by Pasadena firefighters and paramedics and rushed to a nearby hospital. He said her condition is unknown.

The other pedestrian was a 26-year-old woman who also transported to a hospital but apparently only suffering scrapes and bruises.

Hettema said neither driver — a young woman and an older man — was injured in the collision.

A traffic investigation into the incident is ongoing.

No Metro trains are reported to have been involved. A traffic signal was also struck and knocked down during the collision, according to a preliminary report.
