    Barnes-Brown said the driver was still conscious after the crash but did not know his condition.

    "I brought towels and ice because his face was covered in blood. So i was trying to stop the bleeding," Barnes-Brown said.

    While she helped the driver, neighbor Diana Conroy helped the injured man.

    "I put my coat on him and he was bleeding pretty badly," Conroy recalled. "I put pressure on the wound until police and fire came."

    Conroy believes the pedestrian was walking his grandson from nearby St. Joseph's when he was struck.

    "My daughter and the police woman brought the little boy to our house to warm him up," she said.

    The man who was struck was taken to Brigham and Woman's Hospital for treatment where his condition is unknown. The driver was taken to Beth Israel Deaconess for treatment.

    Needham Police are investigating the exact cause of the crash.
