Mary Chandler, a horrified witness at the scene, told NECN the incident was 'surreal', adding that when she saw the woman, she 'was underneath the wheels of the car' and 'it was like nothing' she had ever seen.

'The ambulance, they were here within seconds, because the fire department's right up the street,' Chandler said in the interview.

Another witness, Donna Robinson, told the local news station the Westford Market Basket has been recognized as a hazardous parking lot for pedestrians.

'It is a dangerous parking lot. I don't shop here often, but when I do, it's crazy,' Robinson said.

'I always park down the end because it's just so bad backing up, walking by cars. It's very bad.'  

Robinson added that she saw officials doing compressions on the woman in attempts to revive her. 

The woman's name is being withheld pending notification to her family.

Police say the other driver stayed at the scene, and the accident remains under investigation.
