"The Toyota struck a curb, crossed the sidewalk, and continued rotating through a manicured area of shrubbery. In the process, both pedestrians were struck by the Toyota," the release said.  "Three occupants of the Toyota immediately fled from the vehicle on foot however the two passengers returned to the scene immediately."

The driver, 19 year old Austin Keith Williams Seagraves, continued to flee the scene but later returned, where he was positively identified by multiple independent witnesses and was placed under arrest.
