Officers were dispatched to a possible hit and run in the 100 block of S. State Street. 

The witness told police a truck had backed into another vehicle and had driven away from the area.

Before officers arrived on scene, the truck involved in the incident returned and parked in the parking space it had left from minutes before.  The driver exited the vehicle and tried to leave the area on foot.  Several bystanders physically stopped her from leaving, until officers arrived.
