In a news release police said a woman named Nanette was stopped at the stop sign at the end of College Drive, intending to turn right onto Mountain Drive, when her car was hit from behind by another vehicle.

Nanette told police the car that struck her then “sped north on Mountain Drive as she pulled south.”
