Philadelphia police have provided new details about a tragic hit-and-run incident that resulted in the death of a pedestrian in the Fern Rock neighborhood on Saturday evening.

Investigators have determined that the three vehicles were traveling west on Spencer Street and then made a left turn onto 10th Street.

At this time, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident. Philadelphia police are urging anyone with information about the drivers or the vehicles involved to come forward and contact them immediately.
