LYNN, Mass. (AP) — Authorities and witnesses say a van backing out of a parking spot in Massachusetts repeatedly struck a 60-year-old woman pushing a baby in a carriage, killing the woman.

Lynn police say the baby was taken to a hospital but did not appear to be seriously hurt.

The woman was struck Sunday just seconds after two teens asked her for directions so they could call a relative for a ride.

Eighteen-year-old Moises Baez and 17-year-old Amanda Arsenault tell The Daily Item they watched the van go back and forth over the woman several times and helped pull the baby to safety. Baez says he yelled at the driver to stop but the van’s music was playing loudly.

The death remains under investigation. No names were released.
