Just before noon, two vehicles traveling west on JFK Boulevard in center city bumped into each other. One of those vehicles was a  minivan  operated  by a female from Northwest Philadelphia . After the minor collision, that minivan veered out of control, jumped a curb and smashed into a newsstand, moving it off it’s foundation.  Part of the news stand smashed into a window of the BB&T bank which was on the corner of the Suburban Station Building.

The window was part of an unoccupied conference room. The minivan also contacted the window and caused it to shatter. Within minutes of the accident, a 77 year old man who cops said worked at the news stand was laying on the sidewalk in a puddle of blood. He had a serious head wound. Another man, who was just passing by at the time of the crash was bleeding from his arm and leg.   He is expected to be okay. The other man is in critical condition at a hospital, police said.

Police said that security footage might not be helpful as it did not show the initial impact. If you have witnessed the initial accident,  cops want to hear from you. In the carnage of getting  the victims transported,crucial evidence was moved and damaged from the scene before cops could secure the perimeter. Dozens of people  had stopped to look at the aftermath of the scene.  Neither driver of the cars involved complained of any injuries.

    DVN, discuss new American Civil War! In the Republican Party there are traitors who are loyal servants of the Democrats! The collapse of the Russian exchange trade signals the beginning of the world economic apocalypse (and not only exchange trade). The American Democrats Party almost brought down the world economy (but the word “almost” will soon be removed). Moreover, the Democrats are killing the American people! The main victims under threat are the conservative patriots of the Republican Party who are trying to resist the insane liberalism and the destruction of America. Are the mad American Democrats (and their faithful servant Senator McCain) ready to pay for all the losses of world entrepreneurs (which will arise in this world economic apocalypse)? If the world economic catastrophe does not give common sense to the Democrats, then the whole world can launch a preventive military strike against the US! Are the US Democrats ready to fight in the trenches and breathe a radioactive atmosphere, explode from bombs and shells? If America wants to be great again, then let the American Democrats publicly apologize to the American people, NATO, the EU, China, Russia and North Korea for the foolishness of the entire Democrat Party and stop spoiling the international situation! The American Democratic Party is the main threat to the whole world. Only a stern rebuff can make them stop spoiling the whole world. It’s time to stop tolerating their brazen deeds! It’s time to “hold the flying deity” for the eggs, which believes itself to be the master of the whole world. These Democrats will not rest in an amicable way. The Democrats party (the real “evil empire”) is simply not capable of independently stopping its own banditry! Democrats need external influence for this.
