A Pittsburgh resident who returned to Villanova for their homecoming celebration was hit and killed along Lancaster Avenue in Bryn Mawr at 11:20 p.m. While the accident is still under investigation, witnesses who have spoken to the family of the 23-year-old who was struck called the accident “unavoidable.” It appeared that the woman was running across the street to catch a friend when the car¬†occurred.

When police arrived at the scene, they immediately transferred the woman to Bryn Mawr Hospital. She suffered serious head and brain injuries as a result of the collision. She later died at the hospital at 11:52 p.m.

The woman had traveled back to Bryn Mawr to catch up with friends and her younger sister who also attended Villanova. The woman worked in Pittsburgh for a bank after graduating from Villanova University with a degree major in economics and minors in finance and math.
Based on the Philadelphia Inquirer report, there were several witnesses to the fatal crash including a running back for Villanova’s football team. In a Twitter post about the accident, the running back wrote “I literally just saw a girl get hit by a car going full speed. I can’t even describe how I’m feeling.”
