On February 23, at 10:53 p.m., the driver of a dark colored four-door vehicle (which police say may have been a Toyota, Nissan or Honda), hit two pedestrians at 371 Park Avenue and fled the scene. One of the women struck by the driver suffered from serious injuries to her head, neck, arms and shoulders after the impact of the crash caused her to get tossed into the air. When the victim landed on the car's hood and fell to the ground, witnesses say the driver turned off the vehicle's headlights and drove away. The pedestrian was admitted to UMass Memorial Medical Center-University Campus in critical condition.
