In March 2018, a woman from New Jersey was struck and killed by a vehicle as she attempted to flee the B.F.A. degree program at the University of Pennsylvania.
The vehicle she was driving was an SUV, and her car was a silver 2015 Honda Odyssey, according to a police report.
The woman was a 25-year-old student at the time, and was reported missing after her car failed to stop at a red light, according the police report, which was obtained by the Philadelphia Inquirer.
She was killed at the scene, according a statement released by the University on Tuesday.
The crash occurred shortly after 1 a.m. on the University’s campus in West Philadelphia.
The police report says the woman was driving a silver 2013 Honda Odyssey.
The incident happened near the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and East Street.
Police said the woman left the University and drove to the intersection.
As she was exiting the intersection, a silver Nissan Versa was following her, and the driver of the Nissan jumped out of the vehicle, hit the woman in the face and the back of the head, police said.
The Nissan was going 30 mph in a 35 mph zone, police added.
The woman was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
On Monday, the Philadelphia Police Department released a video of the woman being struck by the Nissan and later found by a bystander.
In the video, the woman can be seen lying on the sidewalk in the parking lot of Penn’s Penn Center campus.
A bystander filming the scene said the vehicle struck the woman “like a truck.”
The police report said that when they arrived, they found the victim’s body on the ground.
Police did not release the victim, her name, or her age.
