Three people died after a car crashed into a Philadelphia subway station on Tuesday.
Police reported that a vehicle drove extremely fast and struck a curb, sending the car flying into a local subway station. The incident was "really gruesome," according to authorities.
The crash happened around 2:45 a.m., according to Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small. An officer on detail in the Kensington neighborhood reported seeing a Honda Pilot traveling at a high rate of speed. The vehicle jumped the curb, hit a metal turnstile, hit three pedestrians, and landed inside the Allegheny Avenue SEPTA station.

One of the pedestrians was decapitated by the flying car, and the body was dismembered and burned due to a car fire that began after the crash. The second victim was mangled and crushed as well.
Police are still investigating the incident with the assistance of Philadelphia's medical examiner.
The driver's identity has not been confirmed, Small said, but police did confirm that the vehicle was registered outside of Philadelphia.
