Two people sustained serious injuries from a two vehicle accident at Hunting Park Avenue and Whittaker Street in Philadelphia, yesterday, July 18, 2019. Philadelphia Police said that both vehicles were west on Hunting Park Avenue, when one vehicle rammed the other in the rear. It was a high speed impact, judging from the damage and vehicle final resting positions.
After the initial impact, the vehicle that was struck got shoved across the intersection, where it hit a building and bounced off of that same building before coming to rest against a fence. The driver of that car collapsed onto the sidewalk with serious injuries. An investigation will tell if either of the drivers was on their phone or under the influence of anything. Traffic around the intersection was detoured for several hours until the highway could be cleared. Two medic units were called to the scene.
