ALBUQUERQUE -- A driver who hit two pedestrians on Tuesday morning said sun glare was the reason for the crash.
Just before 8 a.m., the driver hit two men crossing the intersection at 2nd Street and Central Avenue. Both men were taken to Presbyterian Hospital with neck and back pain, but Albuquerque police report they are expected to be OK.
The driver told KOB Eyewitness News 4's crew at the scene that the sunrise made it difficult for him to see the men crossing the street.
Another driver was observed running a red light through the same intersection shortly after the crash.
