The accident happened Sunday just before 7 a.m. near the 300 block of Old Kennett Pike in Kennett Square on Sunday. Investigators say a teen girl was driving a BMW when she somehow lost control of the vehicle and struck a tree.
The driver of the car, identified as Kirsten Felkowski, 18, of Wilmington, Delaware, was pronounced dead at the scene.
Felkowski's 16-year-old step sister was a passenger in the car. She suffered a broken arm in the crash but was still able to get out of the car and call for help.
Hundreds of business cards from a local mortgage advisor were found scattered on the ground near the scene of the crash. NBC10 reached out to the man listed on the cards. He told us he was the owner of the BMW involved in the accident and that the car was stolen from him. Police told NBC10 they have no reports of the vehicle being stolen however.
Police continue to investigate the cause of the accident.
