She testified saying that she eventually left the scene of the accident to deescalate the situation because Keefe was "freaking out", upset over the damages, and she had started to have a panic attack.

Assistant Police Chief David Eggleston testified he ordered a ticked to be issued to Sager after the accident. He testified Sager was not on scene when police arrived, nor did she give Keefe her insurance information.

Sager's attorney Ron Benjamin said, "She was there 30 minutes she gave all of the identifying information, she said I'll pay it's my responsibility it's my fault, she never tried to evade anything, therefore no violation of the statute."

The judge's decision is expected to take about a week.
