Was drugs or alcohol involved? Drag racing, or a defect in the vehicle? Police will do an investigation to rule in or out the above.

What they do know is that just after 4:00 a.m. an SUV was on Krewstown Rd. when it left the roadway, sheared off a fire hydrant and took out a dumpster, before overturning into the drive thru of a Citizens Bank. Two people were in the vehicle and were heavily trapped. One person died. Police said he was a passenger.

The driver was rushed to Frankford Hospital, Torresdale Division with serious injuries. One other vehicle sustained damage when the fire hydrant that was sheared off struck a vehicle that was occupied. That person did not suffer any injuries.

Building inspectors were called to the scene to determine the integrity of the structure.
