PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police in Philadelphia say a woman was killed and her husband and young son were among six people injured when they were struck by a driver in a stolen car.

Authorities tell WCAU-TV (https://bit.ly/29TnPE0) that a white Toyota Avalon slammed into a minivan carrying several adults and children in south Philadelphia. Police say it then veered out of control and skidded along a sidewalk, hitting the woman, her husband and their 2-year-old son, who were walking by.

It happened around 8:30 p.m. Friday.

Police say the driver continued on for another block and then jumped from the car and ran. They say a 36-year-old man has been arrested. Details weren’t immediately available.

The woman died later at a hospital. There was no information on the other victims.


The headline of this story has been corrected to say 6 other people were injured.
