The Leesburg Police Department is investigating a crash involving two cars and two pedestrians that happened Wednesday night on Plaza Street.
According to the report, shortly after 6 p.m. Feb. 2, department dispatchers received reports of a crash near the Leesburg Public Safety Center on Plaza Street involving two pedestrians who were struck by a vehicle.
The first responding officer found one of the pedestrians trapped under a vehicle. The officer with the help of bystanders lifted the vehicle and freed her. Officers provided medical treatment until rescue crews arrived.
