A second vehicle was also reportedly struck by Coleman’s.

Witness Paul Trammel, who lives nearby, said in an interview that police “should have backed off” because “they would have eventually gotten the guy sooner or later… They had the guy’s license plate.”

By the time firefighters had finished working at the scene, the vehicle was reduced to its shell

Coleman, of Pittsburgh, is charged with criminal homicide, vehicular homicide, and aggravated assault with a vehicle, among other charges.

He remained in UPMC Mercy hospital in police custody Friday.

A family friend has started a GoFundMe for the family’s funeral costs.
