Center City, Philadelphia (July 4, 2017) – One person was killed and two others injured after a deadly two-vehicle crash occurred in Center City early Sunday morning last week.

The crash occurred at around 4:45 a.m. Sunday, June 25 on eastbound Interstate 676, just east of Broad Street.

Rescuers arrived at the scene and located a 2004 Saab blocking the left lane of the roadway and a 2004 Chevy Tahoe blocking the right lane. It was not clear why the two vehicles collided.

Phillip West, a pedestrian, was found lying on the highway and was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital with extremely serious injuries. Shortly after arriving at the hospital, West was pronounced dead.
