Officers and medical personnel arrived and located the crashed green 1999 Ford Explorer on the northwest corner of the intersection with the driver still in the vehicle.

A second person, initially thought to be a passenger in the vehicle, was found deceased and lying in the westbound lanes of the intersection.

Officers quickly learned that the second person was a pedestrian struck by the driver approximately one block to the east of the crash.
