SALEM -- Two people were rushed to the hospital late Thursday night after a hit-and-run crash outside a Salem restaurant.

Police said a fight broke out at the Lucky Fortune restaurant on Lancaster Drive Northeast, which then spilled into the parking lot.

Andrew Harrison was sitting in his car when he saw the group leave the restaurant.

I don t know if there was a melee, but there was definitely a confrontation inside. They came out loud, Harrison said.

Harrison said the group surrounded a vehicle and started pounding on the windows.

A gentleman jumped in a car. It got louder and then he slammed it in reverse and there was a woman on the ground. There were like four people chasing after him, he said.

Police found the abandoned vehicle in a nearby area, but the driver was nowhere to be found.
