Soon after the officers arrived, a witness identified the vehicle involved in the crash. The vehicle had traveled eastbound on 3rd Street and was now stopped at 3rd and Bloomfield Street when it was identified. Officer Straten conducted a motor vehicle stop as Officer Castellano attended to the pedestrian.
