At least three people are dead following a car crash near the Allegheny train station in Philadelphia, police said.
A horrific scene unfolded just before 3 a.m. when the driver of a white Honda Pilot fatally hit two pedestrians, dismembering them and decapitating one, before crashing into the service fence between the train station and a neighboring Walgreens, according to Fox 29. The driver of the car was also killed.
A fourth victim has reportedly been taken to the hospital.
The driver was exceeding 100 miles per hour at the time of the crash, Fox 29 reported.

Authorities marked an area off with tape around the singular vehicle, which remained on the scene throughout their investigation. Several emergency vehicles were in the area, including police cruisers and an ambulance.
