22-year old Matthew Cole was pronounced dead at 5:56 a.m. on Sunday morning, Feb. 27th 2022. Coles death was the result of injuries from what police called a “violent crash” in the Bustleton section of the city. CBS-3 PHILLY reported that the incident took place at the intersection of Bloomfield Avenue & Verree Road, at around 8 p.m. on Feb. 12th.
Police say Cole was a passenger in a 2008 Nissan traveling Northbound on Verree Road, when it slammed into a 2002 Dodge going Southbound on Verree Road, and attempting to turn onto Bloomfield Avenue. The impact from the crash flipped the Nissan onto its roof, ejecting Cole and a 23 year-year old passenger from the car in the process. The vehicle also caught fire.
Two other men were taken to the hospital, and are still in critical condition. The 66-year old driver of the Dodge was last reported to be in stable condition.
