Police said that a witness told them that the driver apparently knew they hit someone, as the driver briefly stopped before speeding off from the scene.
Witnesses said the victim was thrown and landed in the street and partially rolled under a parked car.
“I heard someone screaming. My mom said call police and I ran over,” said Kiana Rivera.
“It was pretty bad, because I spoke with the police officer and he said it doesn’t look good,” said Beverly Ross, who witnessed the crash.
The victim, whose name was not released, was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.
Police said the car, possibly dark green in color, likely had damage to its front end and windshield.
