PHILADELPHIA, PA – Two men were killed when a young girl learning to drive accidentally ran them over.

The incident happened Monday night as a woman was teaching her 15-year-old daughter how to drive in the Aramingo Village shopping center parking lot.

The girl was learning how to park in a Ford Explorer when she accidentally went forward instead of going in reverse.

The vehicle ended up hitting two unidentified homeless men — ages 54 and 55 — sending them into the wall of a Dollar Tree.

One of the men was pronounced dead at the scene while the other died shortly after being taken to the hospital.

Police have not filed any charges at this time but are investigating the incident.

“It was a misfortunate accident, but why should a 15-year-old girl be driving a car with her mother in the passenger side?” asked a friend of the two men.

Criminal Defense Attorney James Funt says the mother of the teen will bear any possible legal repercussions.

Although the girl was under adult supervision, you need to be 16 years of age to obtain a permit.

“You need to have a learner’s permit in order to legally be able to teach your child,” he said.
