PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Philadelphia police are looking for the driver who struck and killed a woman on Broad Street over the weekend.

Police say it happened just before 4 a.m. when 29-year-old Tiffany Reed was crossing Broad Street at Lehigh Avenue and was run over by a vehicle that sped away.

“We don’t know much at all about the car. We do have video, and in the video it’s like a blur," said Lt. Gregory Brown.

Brown says police are looking for more video and they want to hear from anyone who might know more about the accident.

"Just think if it was your sister, aunt, or even mother that this happened to, you would want someone to tell to bring closure to them," he added. 

Brown says Reed was likely crossing the street against the light, and points out that there is still time for the driver to do the right thing and turn him or herself into police.
