On Monday, investigators provided an update, saying they believe the crash occurred when the victim had apparently left a lockbox full of money on top of his vehicle. The box flew off the car as he proceeded to drive down Perkiomen Ave. Investigators say the victim then turned around, stopped his vehicle in the roadway, and began picking up his money that was scattered across the street.

Immediately after the incident, police say a woman claiming to be a former EMT entered the scene and began to collect the money and other belongings. She then left the scene in an unknown direction.

Anyone that can identify the woman or has information about the accident are asked to contact Exeter Township Police Department at 610-779-1490 and reference case #25-10832.
