A 36-year-old Chester man was charged in the death of a 26-year-old woman he allegedly ran over twice at a Tinicum Township gas station, Delaware County District Attorney Katayoun Copeland announced Friday.
Daniel Williams allegedly drove a Nissan pickup truck into Shantel Harmon at a Sunoco station on Industrial Highway shortly before 9 p.m. Thursday. He then backed up the truck and again ran over Harmon before crashing into the front of the station, injuring another woman, Copeland said.
Williams drove away but was followed by a witness who called 911 and provided a description of the truck. Police found the truck parked in an alley in Chester and, with the help of a K-9 dog from Ridley Township, found Williams hiding under a vehicle, Copeland said.
Harmon, of Chester, and the other woman were transported to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where Harmon was pronounced dead. The other victim survived.
