Suspected DUI crash kills Wissinoming woman

 

 

A woman, who police have identified as 58-year-old Teresa Marquard of the 6100 block of Gillespie Street in Wissinoming, was killed this morning after an allegedly drunk driver struck her while she was on the sidewalk.

Police said Marquard was walking on the 5700 block of Frankford Avenue when, shortly after 9:30 a.m., a 33-year-old man driving a green Pontiac minivan jumped the curb and slammed into Marquard before hitting a tree.

Marquard was rushed to Hahnemann University Hospital with head trauma and died a short time later. The driver, who did not leave the scene, is in critical condition at Hahnemann. Police said he is currently under investigation for a DUI, but no charges have yet been filed.
