According to previous Star reporting, the driver of the Nissan left the scene, traveled a few blocks and then returned. Police took her into custody.
A witness to the wreck, Joe Corbin, said the driver of the Nissan might have been unable to see the oncoming traffic because cars parked at the intersection blocked the view.
