Dante Desimone was walking along Baltimore Pike in Clifton Heights with two friends when he was struck by a car and killed Sunday night. The car that hit Desimone collided with another car before striking him. Another one of his friends was hit and suffered serious injuries. He was doing what most kids his age do -- hanging out with friends.
Friends and the community showed an outpouring of support on social media following Desimone's sudden death. Tweets with the hashtag #RIPDante was shared along with remembrances.
Desimone was a 2013 graduate of Upper Darby High School. He was talented hockey and lacrosse player. He began his studies at Neumann University this fall.
