Law enforcement officials reported two female passengers in an SUV were killed in a fatal car crash on Worthington Road, near Byberry Road in Northeast Philadelphia's Somerton neighborhood. Police said speed, the weather, and maybe even alcohol may have contributed to the car accident, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The SUV was on a slippery road when it spun out of control and collided into a utility pole. Byberry Road has a very sharp curve, which might have caused the vehicle to slam into the pole with tremendous force on the passengers' side. The rear wheel of the SUV was torn off from the impact, and one of the victims flew out of the automobile before it crashed into a brick wall.
