Funerals for the four people killed by a runaway driver in Feltonville on Wednesday night will be held this week, with the first scheduled for tomorrow for 6-year-old Aaliyah Griffin.
The viewing will be from 9 to 11 a.m. at Deliverance Evangelistic Church, 2001 W. Lehigh Ave. The funeral will begin at 11 a.m., with burial to follow in Mount Peace Cemetery.
A repast will follow at the church. The information was provided by Aaliyah's aunt, LaTanya Griffin, and confirmed by Savin & Savin Funeral Home, which is handling the arrangements.
Aaliyah died when a car plowed into her and three others on the sidewalk on North Third Street. Also killed were Gina Marie Rosario, 7; Latoya Smith, 22; and Smith's 11-month-old daughter, Remedy.
Donta Craddock, 18, the driver of the car, remained hospitalized yesterday and had not been arraigned. His stepbrother, Ivan Rodriguez, 20, has been charged with murder and other crimes in the case.
LaTanya Griffin said that there had been talk of having services for all four victims together but that the details could not be coordinated.
A viewing for Gina Rosario will be 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Compagnola Funeral Home, 4405 N. Fifth St. The funeral will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday at St. Peter Roman Catholic Church, 5 W. Girard Ave., with burial to follow in Greenmount Cemetery, according to the funeral home.
Latoya and Remedy Smith will be buried Friday, LaTanya Griffin said.
Fox29 News reported that the viewing would be 9 to 11 a.m. at United Methodist Church of Bala Cynwyd, 314 Levering Mill Rd., with a funeral at 11 a.m. That information could not be confirmed last night.
