Cappello allegedly struck a car that had three passengers in it, sending it crashing through the fence of a private property and ejecting a man from the back seat, instantly killing him.

The driver of the struck vehicle, a 31-year-old white male, was taken to Aria-Jefferson Hospital along with a female passenger. He died Dec. 21 after originally being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

After crashing into the first vehicle, Cappello allegedly tried to flee the scene, crashing into a legally parked car. She and a passenger then left the scene on foot. ••
