Investigators announced Sunday morning that they found the driver and the vehicle after reviewing video from traffic cameras in the area.

They were looking for help tracking down a possible witness in a Volvo who was also seen in the video.

Lt. Marie Cleary said that person came forward Sunday afternoon.

“We are so deeply moved by the outpouring of support from friends, family and community. We are also heartened by the swift actions of the Wellesley PD and have full confidence in their competence.

Motsenigos, a vice president at International Data Corporation, leaves behind his wife Nilanthi and their six-year-old son. He was training for his fourth triathlon this fall.

Motsenigos was born in Greece and moved to the U.S. in 1986, according to his family.
