Speaking with 6abc.com, a neighbor talked about how dangerous that part of Mt. Ephraim Ave. can be, especially at night, saying, "Unfortunately, it's not enough lighting in this area for people to be able to see you, for pedestrians to walk across the street if you don't have anything bright you are going to get hit."

Mt. Ephraim Ave. at the accident scene near Woodlynne Ave. was closed for nearly six hours for processing. The Attorney General will continue to investigate, per state law. The age and identity of the victim is not yet available.
