SYNOPSIS OF CRASH

On 5-22-2019 shortly before 01:00 in the morning, a BMW driven by Hunter Hatloy was
traveling eastbound on 79th St NE when he observed an individual, Matthew Hilton,
standing in the middle of the road holding a rifle. Hatloy swerved to the left to avoid
striking Hilton. As Hatloy attempted to regain control of his vehicle, he observed
another individual, Kami Leland, on the road and made a maneuver to avoid striking
Leland. Hatloy struck Leland with the front right portion of his vehicle. Due to the
circumstances, Hatloy continued driving until he felt safe and then called 9-1-1. Leland
was found lying at the bottom of the north ditch and was eventually pronounced dead.

DISCUSSION OF EVIDENCE GATHERED

On 5-22-2019 Trooper Andrew Cashin and myself went to the crash scene near Drayton. Once
on scene, I set up the robotic total station and began measuring the roadway. Trooper Cashin

walked me through the scene and showed me where the pieces of evidence were located.
There was still paint visible where Trooper Cashin had marked the evidence earlier that
morning.

Walking eastward through the scene, there was some glass and other material towards the
south half of the roadway where the passenger outside vehicle mirror was found. To the
southeast of where the mirror was located, is where Leland was found lying at the bottom of the
south ditch. Her body was orientated so that her feet were facing northeast. Just to the
northwest of where Leland was found lying, is where one of her shoes was located. Walking
eastward a few feet from where the mirror was located, another one of Leland’s shoes was
found on the road. Trooper Cashin stated that this shoe appeared to have been driven over.
Continuing to walk eastward there was the driveway on the south side of the road leading to the
house that Leland and Hilton lived in. At the beginning of the driveway a rifle was located on the
ground. Trooper Cashin informed me that this was not where Hilton was first standing but
where he had dropped the rifle when he was looking for Leland.

On 5-24-2019 I went to BK’s Towing in Bathgate where Hatloy’s vehicle was being held to
complete some follow up investigation. I measured the profile of the vehicle with the robotic
total station, completed a post-crash inspection and executed a search warrant for the vehicle.

Standing at the front of the vehicle, I noticed that a part of the front right portion of the bumper
was shattered. Above that the glass on the headlight housing was shattered. Moving up to the
hood of the vehicle, I noticed smudge type marks near the windshield on the right passenger
portion. The front right bottom portion of the windshield sustained contact damage. I
determined it to be contact damage because of the spiderweb nature of the damage. I also
noticed what appeared to me to be blood on the windshield within the contact damage. Stuck in
between the weather stripping and the “A” pillar on the passenger side I found pieces of hair.
Lastly, I observed the passenger mirror was busted. Pictures were taken of what I had
observed.
