Two Men Dead After Tragic Accident In Philadelphia
On Monday, June 4, a 15-year-old girl was in the car with her mother in front of a Dollar Tree in Port Richmond. Two men were directing her and trying to help her park when she accidentally struck them with the SUV. Both men were killed in the accident. The teen was learning how to drive and was being supervised by her mother at the time of the accident. There have been no criminal charges filed however to obtain a legal driving permit an individual must be 16-years-old. The mother, in this case, would probably bear any legal responsibility since she was supervising the minor.
