"Roosevelt Blvd"

I am not in the least bit surprised

Have we tried running actually usable public transportation yet?  How about making the streets more walkable and bikeable?  Did we at least start regularly retesting drivers?

The vehicular assaults and manslaughter will continue.

Guess someone has never heard of a VIN.

Those only apply to diesel vehicles.

I wanna know if the blood on the license plate was from the wreck or if he slashed up his hands not realizing license plates are farking sharp.

Police say they found identification for the male and female inside the vehicle. They are hoping the speed cameras on the Boulevard will help in their investigation.

This ID goes to the deceased.  But this ID.  We need to find out if he's involved in anyway.

I would claim the deceased was driving.   She's deceased.  She won't mind taking one for Team Me.

Pretty sure anyone running from a crash neither owns a car nor a driver's license.

My money is on it being an adolescent male driving stupid on purpose while also drunk or high. None of that would be a shocker, though.

You say that but an unlicensed driver in a stolen car is pretty rare.

I enjoy not travelling into Philly any more for work from here in Delaware. My boundaries of PHL are suiting me just fine. Although there are days where I do miss the excitement of being at a stop light and the guy next to me just pulls out and goes straight on a red because fark you thats why.

I lived in NE Philly for 10 years before I started a family and left. My memories of the Blvd are pretty much:

Probably not among the subset of scumbags who run from a traffic fatality, but the dude trying to remove the plates says he has at least some documented connection to the vehicle.

It's not just Philly. I live in York County, and i believe a lot of people around me consider road signs and lights to be suggestions at best. I don't remember it happening too often in Pittsburgh.

Be sure to tell them that they vote for Oz on Wednesday as to not disrupt the taping of his show.

That was most summer days in south philly when I worked there. I was working around 84th and Lindbergh and saw lots of unusual things. I never had issues with the dirtbike and ATV people though. At stop lights I would tell them that I was going to go in the right lane and not change lanes because my turn was coming up and they respected that.

Only when Antonio Brown was behind the wheel.

Aahhh the boulevard....memories driving home from work, whilst people wanted to race either myself or each other. Have to keep a sharp eye out for the motorcycles that treat other vehicles as speed plyons to race around, or the illegal dirt bikes, busses, the random pedestrian taking a shot at trying to cross the boulevard not able to move fast enough. For some reason the boulevard exit going over to 76 had a lot of crashes. Not sure why, but plenty of very long skid marks to that approach. Another section was voted awhile ago as the most dangerous intersection in American. Yes, people have died there. I remember a couple of the local news stations sent reporters out to try to cross, on foot, that intersection-no one could do it in time unless they ran-it was pretty funny.

My in-laws still live in the city. The ATV/dirtbikers are vicious nowadays. It's gotten pretty bad, so much so that they (in-laws) are finally moving out for multiple reasons.

I've driven in both, and in both places, you need to be on top of your game.

In Philly, it's the other drivers that are the major hazard.

In Pittsburgh, the *drivers* are better, but the *roads* themselves will get you the second you take your finger off your number.

Is this like the main racing thoroughfare in Philly? Every city has one.
