NEW YORK (AP) - Blood was splattered on a Manhattan sidewalk after police say a hit-and-run driver jumped a curb and struck two pedestrians.

The Saturday morning accident at Tenth Avenue and 34th Street left a 44-year-old woman in serious condition and a 40-year-old man in stable condition at Bellevue Medical Center.

Police say the two were struck just before 9 a.m. when a Dodge Durango heading north on Tenth Avenue barreled into a fire hydrant. The SUV then hit a bus stop pole that crushed a bicycle parked there.
