Friends remember Center City hit and run victim; Driver at large

- Investigators have released photos of a white Jeep Wrangler Rubicon they believe was involved in a deadly hit and run in Center City early Sunday morning.

Police believe the person behind the wheel of that Jeep struck 53-year-old Ann Broderick, and then left the scene at Broad and Race Streets.

FOX 29’s Dave Schratwieser returned to the scene Monday night, where the victim’s friends were mourning her death.

Broderick lived underneath and overhang at the Convention Center at Broad and Race Street, where others there were very familiar with her.

Broderick was struck by the Jeep as she crossed the street from her makeshift home, heading to use a bathroom. Her friends say she probably never saw it coming.

Jayson Barrett says Ann was always friendly, but living on the street was difficult. He says everyone who lives and sleeps at this location keeps an eye out for each other.

“Every day we chill. We watch each other, all the time.  We walk around. I take her to go out to eat,” Barrett explained.

A homeless woman named Rose, stopped Monday night to talk to Schratwieser about Ann Broderick.

“You could find 50 to 100 people who knew her and people are going to be very hurt by it,” Rose explained.

Everyone there says they're disturbed by Ann’s sudden death. They were glad to hear that police put out a picture of the vehicle that struck her. Several had a few words for the driver who left the scene and left Ann to die, asking them to come forward.
