A grinding two vehicle crash at the intersection of  Academy and Woodhaven Roads in northeast Philadelphia sent two people to local hospitals January 5 2018. One of the drivers was in police custody, for allegedly driving drunk. That driver was north on Academy Rd  driving a Chevy when  he allegedly ran a red signal and slammed into a car operated by Wanda Tories of the Northeast.

Her vehicle  got shoved about 50 feet past the intersection and into a snow bank.  police said she was the only one in the  vehicle.  It took firefighters about 20minutes to remove her from the wreckage using hydraulic equipment. Rescue 1 was special called to the scene and they arrived from 4th and Girard.  Police are doing a investigation to determine who is at fault and if and how much alcohol or drugs was in the other driver.  That driver was alone in his vehicle as well.  Traffic was diverted in the area.  SEPTA buses had to be diverted away from the scene.
