CENTER, Wis. (WFRV) – Two pedestrians were hit by a vehicle in Outagamie County, resulting in one being airlifted to a local hospital.

According to the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office, on June 19 around 9:30 p.m. officers responded to a report of two pedestrians being hit by a vehicle on STH 47. Authorities say a 73-year-old man from Illinois hit two pedestrians just north of Mackville Road.

The two pedestrians were:

  • 19-year-old man from Appleton

The Appleton man was airlifted to a local hospital with critical injuries, and the 21-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.
