UPDATE: Aaron Bishop, who was the driver of the Jeep involved, provided the following statement on Facebook about the wreck. “I was in the jeep I made a full stop looked rite and thought the town car was parked by the speed dip. Looked left and saw a guy doin yard work. Thought it was an old friend of mine so looked fer a few seconds. When I realized it wasn’t I put it in gear just barely started moving and clipped the town car. Total accident. Everybody was super cool pedestrian and police alike. But ya easily stopped at the sign fer 6 to 10 seconds. Feel terrible about it but like I said the neighbors and police made it not bad at all. Thank you all involved.”
