A pedestrian has been struck and injured by a member of Gov. Andrew Cuomo's security detail near the governor's Westchester County home for the second time in two days.

State police say a 50-year-old Mount Kisco man was hit on Route 117 in Mount Kisco about 7 p.m. Thursday by a car driven by Investigator Gregory Panzarella.

The man was taken to Westchester Medical Center. He was in serious condition Friday.

The first pedestrian, a 22-year-old woman, was hit by an unmarked car driven by Sgt. Joseph Crispino on Wednesday morning on Route 133 in Mount Kisco. She was in fair condition Friday.

Major Michael Kopy says accident reconstruction investigations are under way.

He says each officer was on duty, though neither was responding to an emergency.

A Cuomo spokesman says neither the governor nor his staff members were in either vehicle during the accidents.
