Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – According to reporting from ABC 6 Action News, a motorcyclist was killed in a hit-and-run accident in Northeast Philadelphia.
The crash occurred on Friday at around 11:30 PM.

He lost control of his motorcycle, was ejected, and struck a light pole. Tragically, Kelvin Williams was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
