As CBS 2’s Meredith Barack reported, police said the two men were traveling south on State Street in the stolen red Chevrolet Malibu when they collided with a black sedan headed east on Pershing Road.
A mess of debris was left scattered on street corner in the aftermath of the crash – broken glass and car parts among it.

CBS 2 went back to the scene later Sunday and found a camera right near the hit and run – attached to the Dawson Technical Institute of Kennedy King College, 3901 S. State St. It was unclear late Sunday whether or not that camera captured the crash, or the men accused of leaving the scene.
