Three people have been reported dead, after an SUV crashed into pedestrians and then a SEPTA station, early this morning in the Kensington section of the city. A 6 ABC Action News report said, the events that led to the deadly crash, began when a police officer on routine patrol, spotted a white SUV traveling at a high rate of speed near Kensington & Allegheny Avenues at around 2:45 a.m. on Tuesday morning.
The SUV reportedly jumped the curb and then struck three pedestrians who were standing on the sidewalk. The SUV then hit the turnstile at the Allegheny Station and then crashed into the station itself. And after all that, the last scene in this tragic and deadly play, was the car catching on fire after it crashed into the station.
The male driver of the SUV was reportedly killed. One male and one female pedestrian were also pronounced dead at the scene. A third pedestrian was rushed to the hospital with serious injuries. He was last reported to be in stable condition.
A large crack is evident in the wall of the SEPTA station, according to the Action News report. The Department Of Licenses & Inspection has been called to investigate the structural damage of the El station. Until the investigation is complete, you can expect traffic to be a mess in the surrounding areas, as the city has closed off traffic near the station until L&I completes their investigation of the structural damage to the station’s wall.
