The incident happened in a parking lot near 43rd Avenue and Thunderbird Road around 2:30 a.m. 

Phoenix police say when officers arrived on scene they found three pedestrians with injuries from the collision. 

An adult man and woman were taken to a hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. 

A third person suffered minor injuries and was later taken to the hospital, according to information from the scene.

Police say the three were standing in the parking lot when the driver of a blue sedan struck them and then fled from the area, abandoning the car not far from the scene.
