According to residents of the neighborhood, they heard the collision, ran outside, and discovered someone lying lifeless on the road.
Melissa Rivera, who works in the vicinity of the crash site, described the sound as “loud.” “It was loud. It was loud enough for everybody to come outside and run to it. You could hear the car. It sounded like somebody was racing,” she said.
Someone reported that they could still hear the automobile moving down the block even though it had already passed them.
At this time, there have been no people taken into custody.
