At the company on Thursday, an “RIP” is painted in pink on a parking spot.

Trafftech lost another worker, David Sollars, in March when Wiley Bridgeman, who had just been released from prison, hit them while allegedly driving intoxicated.

Workers at the company were too upset to speak.

The area where the crash happened is well marked. It is a variable speed zone.

After the accident a coworker reportedly chased the driver, first on foot, then got into a good Samaritan’s car and chased the driver. She wound up on the grass in front of the Chipotle on Bagley Road.

Police body camera footage shows that there was a confrontation.

She was taken into custody, but has not been charged. The men chasing her accused her of drinking. Police took her to Southwest General to have blood drawn.

She is currently in jail.
