A pedestrian was critically injured when he was struck by a car in the 7300 block of Penn Avenue in North Point Breeze on Friday night.

The man, who was reported to be in his late 50s, was taken to UPMC Presbyterian in Oakland with facial injuries, according to emergency dispatchers. A second pedestrian suffered minor injuries. The driver of the car, who is 9 months pregnant, was taken to Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC after complaining of abdominal pains, Pittsburgh police said. She also had cuts on her hands from glass that flew into the car when the pedestrian struck the windshield.

A section of Penn Avenue between Lexington and Braddock avenues was shut down during the police investigation of the accident, which occurred shortly before 8 p.m.
