PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — A woman was on a sidewalk in the Germantown neighborhood of Philadelphia on Thursday night when she was hit and killed by an out-of-control SUV.

According to the police, four people fled from the hitting vehicle and left her there.

However, police have since taken a person of interest into custody. Investigators say the charges are pending further investigation.

It happened on Greene Street on West Coulter shortly after 11 p.m.

Police say a white Chevy SUV heading north on Greene ripped through oncoming traffic, jumped the curb and crashed into a utility pole.

The Chevy continued onto the sidewalk where it hit the woman. Police said the vehicle traveled another 50 feet before rolling back down the sidewalk and coming to a stop in front of the Friends of Germantown School.

Upon arrival, police and paramedics found the victim unconscious. She was declared dead.

“This woman had no chance. It is a real tragedy. She was dragged – we think about 15 feet – and possibly run over by this Chevy SUV because she had serious injuries,” Chief Inspector Scott Small said.

The police are working to identify the victim. She did not have her identity card on her when she was beaten. She wore scrubs and was possibly in her 40s or 50s.

The police have checked the license plate and know to whom the vehicle is registered. It will be towed to the pound to be searched.
