Philadelphia, PA (June 10, 2024) – A young child was hospitalized after a crash in Philadelphia’s Holmesburg neighborhood Monday night.

It happened just before 5:00 p.m. on Frankford Avenue and Solly Avenue. Police say a 67-year-old man was driving a red Hyundai when he lost control of the car and struck a white Volkswagen. The Volkswagen was reportedly coming to a stop at a traffic light when it was struck, which caused it to spin out and hit an overpass pillar. Officers say two people in the Volkswagen, a 26-year-old woman and a 4-year-old boy, were taken to Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital.

Authorities say the child is in critical condition and is expected to be transported to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia when he is stable. The woman in the Volkswagen is in stable condition, according to authorities. The driver of the Hyundai was also transported to Jefferson-Torresdale Hospital in critical condition.
