A Penske rental truck slammed into the back of a 49-year-old woman's car stopped at a red light on Route 65 in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, and killed her, said the city's police chief. Witnesses and the lack of skid marks suggest that the truck did not have its brakes applied at all. The crash pushed the woman's vehicle about 260 feet and smashed the trunk into the backseat.
Just outside of Philadelphia in Clifton Heights, a college freshman was killed earlier this month. The teenager had been walking with two friends on the sidewalk along West Baltimore Pike when a car jumped the curb and struck two of the teens. Sadly, one died after being taken to Mercy-Fitzgerald Hospital and the other was seriously injured and taken to the Hospital at the University of Pennsylvania. Fortunately, the third friend escaped from this fatal car accident unscathed.
