Four people in a Nissan Maxima were reportedly traveling westbound on Cottman Avenue when they were t-boned by a Chevy Malibu that ran a red light on Torresdale Avenue while traveling at a high rate of speed. The impact sent the Nissan into a pole and caused the Chevy to flip over.
“When they arrived they found six victims,” Captain Mark Overwise said. “There were two males and four females. The two males were transported to Aria Torresdale Hospital. One male is in grave condition and the other male driver of the northbound vehicle is in stable condition.”
The accident caused multiple ejections — including the female driver of the Nissan who was killed on impact. A 29-year-old woman was transported to an area hospital and is currently in critical condition. Two other women, ages 18 and 30, were also transported to area hospitals and placed in stable condition.
An 18-year-old man in the Malibu was transported to Frankford Torresdale Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries at 5:43 a.m. A 27-year-old man was transported and placed in stable condition. Officials say the driver of the Malibu was also ejected from the vehicle, but it is unclear which of the two men was the driver at this time.
Police believe alcohol played a role in the accident.
