PHILADEPHIA (CBS) — Three people are dead and one person is in critical condition after a fiery two-car crash in Feltonville overnight.
Authorities say it happened just before 2 a.m. at D Street and Whitaker Avenue.
The two cars were heading in opposite directions when the one going north tried to make a left turn, police say, ending in a collision.
All three people in one car were pronounced dead at the scene after the vehicle burst into flames.
“We have no indication about alcohol, just based on the extent of damage it’s safe to say that speed was a factor,” said Captain Frank Palumbo.
They hope surveillance video in the area will help them piece together exactly what happened.
Police say that two of the victims that died were 22-year-old men and the third was a female.
The driver of the second vehicle was taken to Temple University Hospital and is listed in critical condition.
Officials have not released the names of the victims yet.
