Police say 48-year-old Richard Gardner was run over by a pickup just after 4 a.m. Tuesday around Chestnut and Boonville.
The white, full-size Ford pickup left the scene.
Police say it may be missing an outside passenger mirror and has oversize tires.
Moments later, 52-year-old Scarlet Turner stopped to check on Garner and they were both run over by a car.
They were pronounced dead at the scene.
Police say the driver is cooperating.
