Police in Upper Darby are investigating a report that several pedestrians were struck Saturday afternoon by a motorcycle on 69th Street just south of Market Street.


Witnesses said the driver ran from the scene, then hijacked a black Nissan Maxima at knifepoint. 

According to Upper Darby police, the incident was ongoing as of 2 p.m. Saturday and no further details were available. 


Eric Chen, who works at Top’s Beauty Supply on 69th Street, said he heard sirens at about 1:30 p.m. and went outside to see the motorcycle down in the crosswalk.

“There was a lot of police cars and an ambulance came in and I saw two people lying down from afar, and one actually was taken onto the ambulance,” he said. 

A man who works at Cole’s Fine Jewelry, a few doors down, did not want to give his name but said he also saw the aftermath, including the motorcycle in the street.





“We heard the sirens and walked outside. There’s so many people here for the Tower Theater show, that it’s a total zoo.”
