On the night of the Idaho slayings, police were called to the scene of a “horrifying” hit-and-run near the residence of Bryan Kohberger.

Four students from the University of Idaho were slain on November 13 at their off-campus Moscow, Idaho, home. Bryan Kohberger, a 28-year-old criminology student, was apprehended by authorities in Moscow on December 30 at his parents’ Pennsylvania house following a lengthy investigation. Graduate student Kohberger is suspected of murdering Kaylee Goncalves, 21, Madison Mogen, 21, Xana Kernodle, 20, and Ethan Chapin, also 20.

Many news sources have claimed that on the night of the Idaho murders, police reacted to an accident in front of the suspect’s residence, sending two passersby to the hospital. On the evening of November 12 at approximately 11:40 p.m., police were summoned to the scene of a crash in front of an apartment complex on the Washington State University (WSU) campus in Pullman, Washington. Kohberger moved to the apartment complex, which houses mainly graduate or Ph.D. students, from his home state of Pennsylvania in August to begin a Ph.D. program in criminal justice at the university.

Three hours after the incident, police arrived to find two pedestrians, a male WSU student and a lady, injured after being struck by a car. By that time, the driver had fled the scene. Apparently, Turner Gardner told Insider that he saw a man flung from the road and a woman screaming while lying on the ground. To quote her: “It was terrible” when she first saw the sight at 11:59 p.m. on November 12. Aundrea McKinsey, 25, also described hearing a “screech and a loud boom” to the media. In other words, “It was terrifying.”

Carmen Fernandez, a 19-year-old student, was reportedly caught hours later and charged with DUI, felony vehicular assault, and hit-and-run, as reported by the Pullman Police Department. It is unclear, however, if Kohberger actually saw the crime happen close to his business. Law enforcement’s investigation of his cell phone data leads them to believe he was at home during the collision and could hear and see the street below. Neighbors and court documents allegedly identified him as an insomniac.

Cellphone and traffic data indicate that following the incident in the early hours of Sunday, Kohberger drove his white Hyundai vehicle 11 kilometers to Moscow. According to eyewitnesses interviewed by Business Insider, Kohberger took a bold step while police were still present at the scene of the alleged killings by driving past policemen multiple times.

In light of the hit-and-run, the police cut down much of the quickest route to Kohberger’s house. You have to make four U-turns through residential areas and navigate four sets of speed bumps to get to the main road, which is the only accessible path late at night. The police-cordoned-off path only had one bend and one-speed bump. There is no way to know if the crash was related to the murders or just a coincidence.
