One dead in Tuesday crash
The authorities said that one person died in a two-vehicle accident Tuesday after one of the vehicles ended up in a wooded area off E Myrtle Street.
The name of the person who died in the accident about 4 p.m. has not been released because next of kin had not been notified, Philadelphia Police Chief Eric Lyons said.
According to Lyons, there was a two-vehicle accident on Main Street near McClain-Hays. One vehicle left the roadway and came to a rest in a wooded area behind Family Dollar, Lyons said.
Police are unsure what caused the accident, and it remains under investigation, officials said.
