Police are looking for a driver who injured two people Tuesday evening in a hit-and-run crash in Natick, Massachusetts.

Two victims, a male and female, were taken to hospitals by helicopter after a blue pickup truck hit them on the sidewalk of Washington Avenue shortly before 6:30 p.m. The victims were pushed into a wooden fence, police said.

The woman was impaled by the fence, according to a neighbor.

"God bless her. She was fighting and still conscious and both of her legs had multiple, multiple injuries, plus she was impaled with a piece of the spike that had gone from the fence through her," said Karen Miscia, a nurse who ran over to help.
