Two women were killed and a teenager was injured late Wednesday, authorities said, when they were struck by a speeding car that jumped the curb and sent one woman’s body across the street and through the front door of a vacant house in the city’s Mantua section.
It happened about 9:30 p.m., police said, near 35th and Mount Vernon Streets. Zenobia Murray, 58; Nicole Fundenberg, 30; and a 14-year-old girl, who was not identified, were walking home with food they had picked up at a corner store when they were struck.
The women were taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, where they were pronounced dead, police said. The girl, who was bruised and cut on both feet, was in stable condition there.
The 19-year-old woman who was driving stayed at the scene, police said, and was later transported to Penn Presbyterian, where she was in stable condition.
No arrests had been made as of Thursday, but the investigation was ongoing.
By morning, officers had left the scene, but signs of the crash remained. A gaping hole from the car was left in the side of a home, and an unhinged front door was propped up on a step.
