Around officers were flagged down by a
witness who'd seen the accident at Chestnut Expressway and
Cpl. Matt Brown says that witness followed the vehicle involved, and saw two men flee from the scene.
"After responding to the area, officers located a male who fit the witness description as one of the potential occupants," says Cpl. Brown in a statement Friday. "Officers were able to speak with the male who was ultimately cooperative and provided details surrounding the event."

Cpl. Brown says the investigation is ongoing and there could be an arrest or charges after more information surfaces.
Rumple's daughter, Andrea Rogers (right), says she last saw her mother around Thursday.
"I told her I loved her and I would see her later."

When her mother wasn't there when she got home, Rogers became concerned.
"I called her after an hour -- several different times -- off and on for three hours."
She was awoken in the middle of the night and told of the accident.
"An officer woke me up and told me my Mom had passed away. He told me that she got ran over."
"Finally a sergeant called back and told me my mom had been pulled over for a DWI."
During DWI arrests, a person's car it typically towed. Rogers says it's unlikely her mother was drunk, but rather heavily medicated.
"It was her medication. She's been diagnosed with severe manic depression. Lithium and a few other things."
Roger says she had been concerned about her mother driving.
"I was trying to keep her from getting behind the wheel, because I know the medication could hurt her or somebody."
But, she says she was even more confused about why her mother would be released from the Greene County Jail.
"They should have know she was incoherent, because she was incoherent. My mom was incoherent when they released her."
Rogers says her mother should not have been released.
"She got ran over. She died within probably not even 15 minutes after they released her. This issue has to do with my mom's death and it has to with the state of Missouri, Greene County releasing my mother out on the streets incoherent, so I do think it's their problem and I do blame them."
Maj. Phil Corcoran with the Greene County Sheriff's Office says because the arresting agency did not request a 24 hour Probable Cause hold, Rumple was released after completion of the booking process.
"We are still trying to determine the facts surrounding the case, how the pedestrian was in the intersection, how she was struck and killed," says Cpl. Matt Brown.
