This story is so sad. A sweet little elderly couple trying to cross the road at a Boise intersection was hit yesterday afternoon while they were trying to cross the street.

It happened at about 5 o'clock yesterday at the intersection of Milwaukee and Northview. The 87-year-old woman suffered life-threatening injuries. The 89-year-old man was also taken to the hospital. His condition at this time is unknown.

According to KTVB, the accident happened when the driver of the SUV made a left-hand turn from Northview onto Milwaukee when they hit the couple in a crosswalk.

The driver is working with authorities and an investigation is ongoing. Obviously, everyone hates to see something like this happen to grandma and grandpa.

It looks like it was most likely an innocent mistake, but we sure hope they both pull through.
