According to Kevin, tow-truck driver, as he was coming down 8th St. about 100 feet before the intersection when the pickup truck barreled across the intersection. Kevin had no way to stop in time, flipping the pickup over the corner of 8th and Ivy.

Sophia Phillips, an eye witness, was at the intersection waiting to make a right turn onto 8th street as it happened.

According to Phillips, the pickup did not stop at the stop sign before it was hit by the oncoming tow-truck.
