Two women were struck by a car Monday morning near the Twinbrook Metro Station, Rockville city police said. One woman was critically injured in the incident, which occurred around 8:45 a.m. on Chapman Avenue, the police said.

The more seriously injured woman is a 63-year-old Upper Marlboro resident, police said. They said she was not in a marked crosswalk when struck by a car that was southbound in the 1800 block of Chapman. She was taken to Suburban Hospital where she was in critical but stable condition, the police said.

The other woman, a 20-year old Winchester, Va., resident was in non critical and stable condition at the same hospital, police said. They said she was in a crosswalk when struck.

Both were expected to survive, the police said.

Chapman Avenue runs northwest and southeast, between Rockville Pike on the west, and Metro's Red Line tracks on the east.

The site of the incident is about a block south of Halpine Road and two blocks north of Twinbrook Parkway.

Police said Chapman was closed for several hours while they investigated.
