PHOENIX -- Two women were injured when they were struck by a car in North Phoenix Monday evening. But what's odd about this accident is that police say they found no driver in that car.

It happened near Greenway Road and 36th Avenue. Neighbors say they heard a crash, and called 911.

It's not clear exactly how the 37-year-old daughter and her 55-year-old mother were hit. The mom was found unconscious in the street; her daughter was found pinned under the car in a neighbor's driveway.

"After they got the car off of the daughter, she wasn't in as much obvious pain," says neighbor Gregory Lawary. "The mother was sitting up. She was talking."

Phoenix firefighters told 3TV that when they arrived, there was no one in the car, but the driver's side car door was open. Investigators are taking DNA samples from the car to try to determine exactly what happened.

Both women were taken to John C. Lincoln Hospital. Their injuries are said to be minor.
