One male is dead following a strange accident in the Kensington section of the Philadelphia. The crash happened in broad daylight, just after 9:45 AM yesterday, November 1, 2021.  The accident happened at Lehigh Avenue  and Mascher Street.  A vehicle was west bound on Lehigh, when the driver went around another vehicle, to get through the intersection.


In the meantime, a person decided to sit in a chair, in the middle of the intersection.  They were struck by the car and dragged the person one block to Lehigh and Hancock Street, where they were pronounced dead at 10:17 AM.  The driver of the striking car remained on scene.  A  toxicology test is going to be given to see if the person sitting in the chair was impaired.
