Driver Hurt After Rear-Ending Tow Truck in South Philadelphia

A man suffered serious injuries after smashing his sedan into the back of a tow truck in South Philadelphia early Monday.

Police didn't immediately release the name of either driver in the crash which happened around 2:15 a.m. at Penrose and Pattison avenues.

The driver of the vehicle which rear-ended the tow truck was taken to Presbyterian Hospital with unstable vital signs after firefighters freed him from the wreckage, said police.

Police worked early Monday to figure out what caused the crash.
