One vehicle was travelling north on Gibbs Street toward Coolidge Street while the other was travelling east on Coolidge Street. The first operator observed that the other vehicle was not going to come to a complete stop at a stop sign; however, the operator explained he noticed this too late and the second motor vehicle crashed into the rear of his vehicle. The second operator stated she came to a complete stop, but did not see the first operator travelling on Gibbs Street.

Surveillance footage of the transaction was taken into evidence.
