An out-of-control car took down light poles and left a trail of debris along Main Street this morning.


The car was headed westbound on the 4000 block Main Street in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia around 6:30 a.m. when it hopped the curb and rammed into some light poles in front of the Starfinder Foundation building.

After the wreck the driver reportedly ran away from the scene.
