According to authorities, after two cars bumped in the gas station parking lot, Jackson, a passenger in one car, got out and Sanderson drove her Pontiac at Jackson.

Jackson's cause of death was blunt impact to the head, neck, trunk and extremities with brain, visceral, vascular, skeletal and soft tissue injuries, according to the medical examiner.

During the confrontation in the gas station parking lot, then jumped onto the hood of Sanderson's Pontiac, authorities said. Sanderson then drove the Pontiac out of the parking lot and onto East 55th Street and proceeded southbound with Jackson still on the hood.
