“On November 5, 2020, at 17:42 hours, a motor vehicle crash occurred in the intersection of NW 1st Avenue and NW 2nd St. A tan 2007 Hyundai Sonata was traveling north on NW 1st Avenue. A white 2018 Dodge Journey was traveling west on NW 2nd Street. While the Dodge continued west, the Hyundai failed to stop at a posted stop sign and struck the Dodge. The front end of the Hyundai struck the left side of the Dodge. After the crash occurred, the Hyundai did not stop and continued north on NW 1st Avenue. The victim/driver of the Dodge followed the Hyundai attempting to stop the vehicle. The Hyundai turned right (east) onto NW 3rd Street, and then left (north) onto North Swinton Avenue. While on North Swinton Avenue, the Hyundai stopped in traffic and the victim approached the Hyundai on foot. The victim told the white male driver to stop because of the crash. The victim stated the white male driver appeared to be “not functioning” and unable to put the Hyundai into the park gear.

Amann stumbled a few times while walking during this incident.”
