"He’s a good friend," Travalgia said last month. He said he only found out about the crash when he got a call to come into work the morning after the crash.
"My boss called me and told me that Alan, who is a livery driver like myself, got hit by a car crossing the street going to our office," he said.
Surveillance video showed the moments right before Martel was struck.
