EVERETT, MASS. (WHDH) - Police are investigating after a pedestrian was struck and seriously injured by a car in Everett Friday night.

Emergency crews responded to a reported pedestrian crash on the westbound side of the Revere Beach Parkway around 10 p.m., according to Massachusetts Department of Transportation officials.

The victim was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The driver stayed on the scene.

George Hernadez who lives in the area said he heard the crash and came rushing out to see what had happened.

“We came down here to check it out,” he said. “There was a dude laying on the floor, they were doing CPR to him and trying to get a response. There was no real response but from what I could see they took him in the ambulance and there were some beer cans scattered all around throughout the floor, there was a pair of shoes over there.”

Hernandez said a crowd gathered around the scene as crews worked to block off the area.

All lanes have been temporarily closed while crews work to clear the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
