The man and woman had been walking on a sidewalk near 5 Washington Ave. when they were struck by a blue pickup truck that then took off, police said.
“A young girl was lying impaled with part of a fence in her stomach, and a young man was on the ground and he had blood in his upper chest. They were just walking, up the street, yeah. Young couple in their 30′s or 40′s,” said Burgess.
Witnesses told police that a female driver, with two passengers in the pickup truck, jumped the curb and hit the pedestrians, pushing them into a fence.
