Officials: SEPTA bus slams into family, killing man

- Officials say a SEPTA bus jumped the curb, slammed into a family, then crashed into a home in Northeast Philadelphia. According to investigators, one person was killed and multiple people have been injured. 

SkyFOX was over the scene of chaos in Northeast Philadelphia Thursday evening moments after a SEPTA bus slammed into a family standing outside a home on Frankford Avenue at Morrell. One was killed and several were hurt. 

Police say somehow the bus ran a red light while coming down Morrell—hit one car—causing a chain reaction crash, then jumped a curb before striking and killing a 53-year-old man.

A 28-year-old man and 21-year-old woman were also injured. They're in stable condition. 
Investigators say they are related to the man who died. At least one of them lived at the heavily damaged home. 

At least 10 people were on the bus and police say three of them were hospitalized for back and neck pain. The bus driver is also being treated. He's in stable condition.

The victims in the cars have minor injuries. The bus' cameras recorded the incident.
