The driver of this vehicle was described as a Hispanic male between 30-40 years of age, honked his horn at her twice. The vehicle then turned around on Main Street and proceeded east bound and then turned onto Washington Avenue. The driver then slapped the side of his truck to get her attention and motioned with his hand for her to come towards him.
