The sedan that struck the RAV 4 caught fire after the collision. Both drivers, whose names have not been released, died at the scene.

Officials have not yet provided any possible causes for the crash. Witnesses told CBS Philadelphia that one of the drivers lost control of their vehicle and sped on the wrong side of Broad Street before hitting the other car head-on.
