Smith is charged with murder, homicide by vehicle while DUI, among other related charges. The 30-year-old male victim has been identified as Anthony O'Connor of Jamison, Bucks County.

The 29-year-old victim was shot in the head by someone inside a 2003 silver Ford Crown Victoria after a car race on city streets. The victim had been taken to Temple University Hospital. Police saw a vehicle matching the description of the suspects' with four people inside near Butler Street and Aramingo Avenue. When they turned on their lights, the vehicle fled onto I-95 North.

Uber has introduced a variety of new rules beginning on Monday, May 18, intended to keep both riders, drivers, and Uber Eats delivery drivers safe during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. Both drivers and passengers will be required to wear a mask or face covering while traveling inside the vehicle. Drivers have to take a selfie wearing the mask and answer a safety checklist in order to get online and start receiving rides. Passengers also have to answer a checklist which includes a question about wearing a mask. No passenger can ride in the front seat and UberX capacity will be reduced. Drivers and riders can cancel a trip without penalty if the other party is not wearing a mask. There will be an option added to feedback forms to be able to report if someone wasn't wearing a mask. Drivers will either be sent cleaning supplies or will be reimbursed for the purchase of supplies. They will be responsible for frequent sanitizing of their vehicle. The mask requirement will be reassessed at the end of June.
