According to the Carson City Sheriff's Department, Sharon Duranko, 52, and her daughter Sherry Duranko, 27, were crossing at Carson and John streets about 10:14 p.m. when they were both hit by a car driven by Charles Frost, 70.

Frost was southbound and making a left turn onto John Street when the accident occurred.

"He just didn't see the pedestrians," sheriff's Lt. Ray Saylo said.

Both women were transported to Carson-Tahoe Hospital where they were treated for minor injuries, Saylo said.

Frost was cited for failure to yield to pedestrians.
