Car Jumps Curb, Strikes 4 in Front of Hoagie Shop on Philadelphia's South Street

A driver jumped the curb and struck a group of people – possibly breaking limbs – outside a popular South Street hoagie shop overnight.

The 21-year-old driver somehow wound up smashing into Primo’s Hoagies at 326 South Street a little after 1 a.m. Tuesday, shattering a glass panel in front of the hoagie shop.

The car struck three men and one woman. All four were rushed to Jefferson University Hospital in stable condition with possible broken arms and legs, said Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small. [[382901651, C]]

The 21-year-old driver and her passenger remained on the scene and spoke to accident investigators, said Small.

Police didn’t expect to file and serious charges but the investigation continued early Tuesday as officers blocked off the 300 block of South Street.

Primo’s, which has a four-star rating on Yelp, was closed at the time.
