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.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead a short time later the car could be seen up on the sidewalk facing away from the Schuylkill River lodged between a building and utility pole.

No reports yet on injuries.

The cause of the crash remained under investigation.
