Police are investigating a motor vehicle-pedestrian accident that occurred on Ashland Street on Friday morning.
Ashland Street was closed for about a half-hour on Friday morning after two women were struck by a small pickup.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Two women were struck by a small pickup truck while crossing Ashland Street late Friday morning.
 
Sgt. Albert Zoito said the two women were crossing the road between Quincy and Summer streets when they were hit by a gray southbound Toyota Tacoma with a Vermont plate at about 11:40 a.m. 
"The condition of one is serious but not believed to be life-threatening at this time," he said. "The other is not life-threatening."
 
Both women, one with what Zoito described as a serious head injury, were taken from the scene by ambulance. Neither the pedestrians nor the driver of the pickup have yet been identified and, so far, no one has been cited in the accident. There are crosswalks at Quincy and Summer but not where the women were walking.
 
"Two people were hit by a vehicle while attempting to cross," Zoito said. "It is under investigation."
 
The Fire Department also responded and traffic was detoured for about a half-hour.
