The driver put the car in reverse and started backing down Aspen Street. The car side swiped three cars before Johnson tried to jump out. Captain Frank Milillo said she got caught under the front tire. The vehicle proceeded to hit another car. The driver then fled the scene.

Uber drivers in Philadelphia and six other cities in the United States plan on striking next week on May 8th. The day coincides with the company's planned initial public offering on the stock market. The other cities include Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Drivers will be turning off their apps and won't be accepting rides for 12 hours. Not all Uber drivers in Philadelphia will be participating. They are asking for higher wages, benefits, and more representation. Philadelphia drivers will rally at the Uber Greenlight Hub on Bartram Avenue at noon next Wednesday.

Philadelphia Police are searching for a suspect in a shooting in South Philadelphia early Monday morning. It happened around 1 a.m. on the 1300 block of Fitzwater Street.
