A pedestrian and a passenger on a motorcycle were both killed in separate accidents Saturday night in Wayne County.

The latest accident happened around 10 p.m.

Wayne County's sheriff tells NewsChannel 3 a pedestrian was killed after being hit by a car.

It happened in front of Nelson's Bar.

At this point, officials are not releasing the victim's name.

The other fatal accident happened when a motorcycle crashed into a car.

Sheriff's deputies say it happened at the intersection of Route 152 and German Ridge Road just outside Lavalette.

Police say a man and wife were travelling south on Route 152 when the motorcycle skidded, threw the female onto the road and caused the motorcycle to slide into the car.

The man died at the scene, and his wife was taken to the hospital.

Both lanes of traffic were blocked for some time.

We will continue to update as we get more information on both of these fatal accidents.
