Two pedestrians and the driver of an SUV died horrifically early Tuesday when the vehicle lost control and slammed into a SEPTA station wall in Philadelphia.
The tragic accident took place at around 2:45 Tuesday at Kensington and East Allegheny avenues and involved an out-of-control, speeding SUV that jumped a curb and hit three pedestrians on the sidewalk.
“It sounded like a bomb went off and everyone started running away,” eyewitness Ariana Kmecak said.
“Once it settled down, people started walking closer towards it. Then they saw the car so they started running over.”
The driver of the car died after it caught fire. A third victim sustained injuries but is expected to recover.
“There is a male body right in front of the vehicle,” Police Chief Inspector Scott Small said.
“That body is clearly decapitated. The body is clearly mangled and appears to be somewhat burned.”
