PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — One person is dead, several others — including an infant — are injured after a crash in West Oak Lane.

A 35-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. Four others, including a four or five-month-old infant, were taken to Albert Einstein Medical Center in a crash that involved an SUV with five people inside, and the cab of a tractor trailer.

It happened just after 11 p.m. at the intersection of Stenton Avenue and Washington Lane.

Police say a preliminary investigation shows the car was heading east on Washington when it ran a stop sign at Stenton and was hit by the truck.

The truck driver was treated for minor injuries.
