New footage of the incident has since been released, and according to News on 6, shows that Cheadle was hit by a second vehicle after the initial collision. The video shows a van striking Cheadle before braking and then fleeing the scene.

The driver of the Chevy truck who initially hit Cheadle has been in contact with the police. No arrests have been made.
