(KMOV) – Funeral arrangements have been made for a 28-year-old woman who died after being hit by a car Wednesday morning in north St. Louis.

The wake for Dekayla Small will be held on Wednesday from 3-7 p.m. at William C. Harris Funeral Home. The funeral is on Thursday at 11 a.m. Donations can be sent  to the funeral home.

Police say Small ran into the street after being chased by a person on a bicycle. The accident happened at Grand and Natural Bridge just before 3:00 a.m. on Wednesday.

Doctors had to amputate Small’s right leg after it was severed by the car. Police say Small later died of her injuries.

The car that Small collided with ended up over the curve and struck a pole outside a Rally's restaurant. The driver of that vehicle was also injured. She suffered a head injury and is currently listed in stable condition.

The person on the bike who was allegedly chasing Small got away and police are trying to find that person. Police say they have leads on the identity of the person on the bike. Police have not said why Small was being chased in the first place.
