Two pedestrians are dead in Seattle after being hit by vehicles Thursday morning.

The first crash happened on State Route 99 just south of the 1st Avenue Bridge. All lanes have been closed, and the Washington State Patrol is investigating.

Seattle police say they’re investigating a separate crash on East Marginal Way South and Ellis Avenue. They say a driver hit and killed someone, but the driver stayed at the scene.

Authorities are telling drivers to avoid both areas.
