Two people were struck by a car on Tuesday at Widener Gate along Mass. Ave.
The victims, a security guard employed by Harvard and an individual not affiliated with the University, were both hospitalized, according to Cambridge Police Department spokesperson Daniel M. Riviello and Harvard University Police Department spokesperson Steven G. Catalano.
Security guards have been posted at Widener Gate and other gates to Harvard Yard since mid-November, when the University barred visitors without Harvard IDs from entering the Yard due to security concerns surrounding the Occupy Harvard encampment.
The protesters announced last week that they plan to remove their tents from the Yard and they hope the ID checks at the gates will soon end.
Both CPD and HUPD are investigating the collision.
