The criminal complaint states several witnesses reported seeing a black vehicle, registered to Brown, traveling west on First Street. It reportedly proceeded through a green light and struck Intale. Those witnesses reportedly stated they saw a man exit the driver's seat of the vehicle and begin approaching Intale before getting back in the vehicle and leaving the scene.
