According to investigators, the truck driver had a green light when the woman was crossing the street.

“When I ran out, it was a woman, and she had all this blood just gushing out her mouth,” Stephany Garcia told ABC Philly. “It was just sad. The kids, one of them looked like it was passed out, and when they picked them up, one of them was crying. The other wasn’t moving.”
