The 35- and 53-year-old victims were run down when investigators believe the driver of a Dodge Caravan lost control and veered onto the sidewalk as the van travelled southbound toward the bridge.

Both women were rushed to hospital but police say they are expected to recover.

The driver of the van, a man in his 60s, was also assessed in hospital.

Sgt. Jason Robillard says a cause of the crash has not yet been determined.
