Germain was killed in front of Savage's home. Germain was parked just steps away from Dunny's bar, where an employee says she was enjoying their well-known Blues Night.

Savage says after the crash, bar customers and a driver rushed to help.

"All I heard was a guy saying 'call 911.' She was laying on the ground, he was feeling for her pulse saying she had a pulse, then saying 'I don't think she has a pulse anymore,'" Savage said.

Germain was a nurse in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at MetroWest Medical Center.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of Lisa Germain," the hospital said in a statement. "She was a great friend, mentor and team member. She will be deeply missed by everyone at MetroWest."
