    State and local police say they're looking for a silver or gray PT Cruiser in connection with the fatal crash.

    "It's making me nervous because I keep saying somebody is going to get hit there," Haverhill resident Nancy Crowley said.

    Sean Nickerson, who owns a fitness center near the scene, said he has never seen an incident like this in the 12 years he's owned his business.

    "It's always surprising," he said. "It's sad, you know?"

    "Over the last eight years when they were doing a lot of road work, a lot of detours," Nickerson said. "But never, never an incident. So it's just an unfortunate tragedy."

    NBC10 Boston's Sky Ranger helicopter was over the scene, where a tent in the middle of the street was surrounded by responding units.
