SALEM, Ore. - Two people were run down when an altercation spilled out of a Salem restaurant and a driver sped away.

The hit-and-run happened around 10:45 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot of the Lucky Fortune Restaurant at 1401 Lancaster Drive N.E.

"I heard a racket come out (of the restaurant)," said Andrew Harrison, who saw what happened. "There was like four people that came out the door and it just got really loud. A gentleman jumped in the car and it got louder. And then he just slammed into reverse and I looked back in my rearview and there was a woman on the ground."

Police say there were two victims, who are now hospitalized. There is no word yet on their condition.

The car was found abandoned not far from the restaurant and whoever was in it was long gone.
