PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The sounds of Frankford Avenue rarely bother Brian Kabosius, but what he heard Monday morning was different.

“I heard a sound that woke me up,” said Kabosius, “I went downstairs to look outside and see what it was.”

A hit-and-run at 4 a.m. just outside his house brought him out to the intersection of Frankford Avenue and Benson Street.

“I saw that there were two women that had pulled over and were in the middle of the street, trying to flag people down,” remembered Kabosius.

Kabosius ran inside to call 911. Police say the victim was hit once when the two women stopped. As they tried to help him, police said a second car came by and hit him again.

“He wasn’t moving,” said Kabosius, “But I thought I heard him trying to communicate with people.”

Emergency crews rushed him to the hospital, but it was too late. He was pronounced dead at Aria Hospital Torresdale.

Neighbors say they are not surprised something like this could happen here.

“These days, I don’t know,” said Holmesburg resident Ann Hornbach. “I’ve lived here all my life and in the past, people did stop and try to help out. But today I think people are afraid.”

Police have yet to release any information about the victim in this case. They are still trying to gather information about the two cars involved in the crashes. They said the second car is silver in color and may be a Honda.
