The Fort Lauderdale Police Department is investigating a hit-and-run incident that left two pedestrians seriously injured early Thursday morning.

The incident occurred around 4:15 a.m. in the 200 block of South Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard. Video surveillance footage from a nearby restaurant captured the moment two pedestrians stumbled and fell off the sidewalk and onto the road, after which a car travelling northbound ran them both over, officials said.

The driver did not stop the car and continued travelling northbound. The vehicle is described as a two-door, red Porsche.

Both victims were transported to Broward Health Medical Center with serious injuries. They were identified by police as tourists visiting from Norway, although their names are not being released while the investigation is underway.

Police are searching for a hit-and-run driver who struck two tourists in Fort Lauderdale. NBC 6's Stephanie Bertini reports.
