A family of four, including 2-year-old twin girls, were injured after a car struck their disabled minivan in Northeast Philadelphia Tuesday afternoon.
A 28-year-old woman told NBC10 she was driving with her 28-year-old fiancé as well as her two-year-old twin daughters when their minivan caught a flat tire. They then pulled to the side on Woodhaven Road (Route 63) westbound near Thornton Road around 1 p.m.
As her fiancé went outside to change the flat, a Honda sedan slammed into the minivan, police said. The woman, her fiancé, and her daughters were all injured in the crash and taken to the hospital.
One of the twin girls as well as the woman's fiancé are in critical condition. The other twin girl is also being treated for serious injuries while the woman suffered minor injuries.
