UPDATE On Accident (Nov. 15, 2010)

According to James Paz, an anonymous caller phoned the police with a license plate number of the driver who hit Matson and Paz.

The car was tracked down a few blocks from the incident, and found to be damaged. However, the police have refused to bring the driver in for questioning and have accepted his/ her story that they were not driving the vehicle. Presumably they offered some sort of story about not knowing where the keys where, and not being responsible for the whereabouts of their car, said Paz.

Another witness was interviewed at the scene, but no word yet on what that witness had to say.

More information when it becomes available.
