About an hour and a half after the accident, the driver of the Fiat returned to the scene. He was identified as Skyler Chad Siva. Siva was treated for minor injuries and later arrested and charged with a hit-and-run felony.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation and it is unknown if alcohol or drug impairment were a factor. The intersection was closed for several hours.
