Two pedestrians sustained serious injuries when a car crashed into a bus shelter on the Lynnway at Harding Street in Lynn, according to state police.

A woman at the bus stop was taken by medical helicopter to Massachusetts General Hospital with what were believed to be life-threatening injuries, police said.
