Woman hit by car at 34th and Market

A minute ago, I heard an unusual sound from the street below my window. There was a clunk and a muffled gasp and then a moment of total silence. I stood up, and tried to look out my window, to see if there was anything to see, but my window is high up and not designed for street-looking. I sat back down and resumed typing an email.

Soon after, a co-worker came into my office and said, “did you see that?” It turns out the clunk and gasp I had heard was a woman being hit by a car in front of our building. I just stood on my desk to get a better look, and I can see that there is a minivan stopped at the corner, and the hit woman is sitting on the street, surrounded by both Penn and Drexel security personnel. I haven’t seen an ambulance come by yet. I hope that everyone involved is okay.
