Police officials reported a head-on vehicle collision resulted in the death of a 19-year-old Glenside male resident. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, a private ambulance crashed into the 19-year-old's automobile at 66th Avenue and Broad Street in East Oak Lane. The name of the victim has not yet been released by authorities.

As the car headed north on Broad Street, it ran into the ambulance while merging into the southbound lane. The vehicle caught on fire after the impact, and the 19-year-old driver along with a 24-year-old male passenger were trapped inside. Pennsylvania police were able to pull the 24-year-old man out of the car, finding him in critical condition and suffering severe injuries.

The passenger was rushed to the Albert Einstein Medical Center, while the 19-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene. Those in the ambulance include a 24-year-old male driver, a 28-year-old medic, and a 63-year-old male patient, all of whom Einstein reported were in stable condition. Authorities are still investigating the accident, and it is not clear if either side has contacted a Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer to recover damages or file any potential injury claims.
