2 dead, 2 injured after car hops curb and strikes group of women in Mantua

Authorities say two women are dead and a teenage girl is injured after a car hopped the curb and struck a group of women before smashing into a rowhome in Mantua.

The fatal crash happened around 9:30 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of North 35th Street and Mount Vernon Street. 

Police say a Ford sedan was traveling east on Mount Vernon Street when it veered off the road and fatally struck 58-year-old Zenobia Murray and 29-year-old Nicole Fundenberg.

"My daughter was only 29 years old. She was the sweetest child. Everybody knows and loves her and I just don’t understand why you got to speed," Fundenberg's father told FOX 29.

FOX 29's Steve Keeley reports Fundenberg was hit with such force that she was launched approximately 40 feet and through the front door of a rowhome. The suspected striking vehicle also smashed into the home and left a gaping hole in its foundation.

A 14-year-old girl who was also struck is reportedly in stable condition. The driver of the car, a 19-year-old woman, is also stable.

Authorities believe a Real Time Crime camera positioned near the intersection may have captured the entire incident.
