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.
