A vehicle struck two people after a disturbance Friday evening, leaving both with serious injuries.

Independence Police Sgt. Darrell Schmidli says the incident happened around 7 p.m. on Friday in the 1200 block of North Main Street in Independence. That area is north of U.S. 24.

Although he says the exact details are still unclear, the disturbance involved three people and started with a knife. One of the people involved left the scene in a vehicle. That person subsequently went to another address and called police. However, the person returned to the scene of the incident and struck the other two parties involved with the vehicle.

The two people were taken to area hospitals with serious injuries, according to Schmidli.

The incident is under investigation.
