PHILADELPHIA: Hit-And-Run Accident Kills One

Sadly, Catherine Brown was killed in an auto accident on January 27, 2017 at the intersection of 57th and Girard in West Philadelphia. Police are looking for the hit-and-run driver of a white minivan who struck and killed Ms. Brown, age 48. According to witnesses, there was a light in the driver’s car that looked like it was a cell phone light. Distracted driving is the number one cause of personal injury car accidents in the state of Pennsylvania. If you know anything about this fatal accident please call the Philadelphia police.
