Terrified residents described hearing a ‘loud boom’ at the time of the incident.

‘No brakes, nothing. It was just, yeah, just a boom,’ one neighbour told 9News. 

Another local said the 62-year-old woman allegedly hit by the car would regularly sit on the front verandah and wave to neighbours. 

Police will continue their investigations on Saturday.
