PHILADELPHIA (CBS)—A vehicle believed to be involved in a deadly hit-and-run was recovered in Delaware County, sources tell CBS3 on Tuesday.

Broderick is believed to be homeless and was reportedly sleeping nearby when she got up to cross the street and use the restroom.
A security guard patrolling the area found the Broderick with trauma to her skull on the street.
“Ann was vibrant, a beautiful soul even though her situation was her situation,” said Abby Anderson, who volunteers with the homeless and says she met Broderick six months ago. “She was a human being. It broke my heart that had happened to her. She was family. I thank God I had the opportunity to give her a hug on Saturday.”

On Tuesday, sources say police found the Jeep in Collingsdale after receiving a tip on the location. The vehicle is currently being processed by Philadelphia police at the Collingdale police garage.
Collingdale police say that the vehicle is registered to United Electrical Service, LLC–a small business listed at that address.
A police source tells CBS3 that the owner of that company and vehicle may not have been the one driving during the hit and run.
