Two pedestrians killed in separate accidents

By Shannon McDonald

Two pedestrians were killed in as many days while crossing streets in separate parts of the Northeast.

A woman was struck by a vehicle Sunday night while crossing the intersection at Roosevelt Boulevard and Pratt Street. The accident happened aroun 8:45 p.m., and the driver stopped at the scene.

On Monday night, a man was killed after being struck by a car near Magee Avenue and (New) State Road at 11 p.m. He was pronounced dead at Aria’s Torresdale campus. That driver also stopped.

Both accidents are still being investigated.
