On April 11, a pregnant woman and her unborn child were killed in a devastating motorcycle accident in the Rhawnhurst section of Philadelphia.
At about 9:30 p.m., Giselle Moya, 28, of Philadelphia, got off of a bus on the 7600 block of Roosevelt Boulevard. As she was crossing Roosevelt Boulevard, she was hit by a Kawasaki motorcycle driven by a 25-year-old man.
Moya, a mother of a 5-year-old boy, was also eight months pregnant. She was transported to Albert Einstein Medical Center where both she and her unborn child were pronounced dead at 10:18 p.m.
The driver of the motorcycle suffered a broken leg and head injuries. He was taken to the Frankford Torresdale Hospital where he was listed in stable condition.
The accident is still under investigation and no charges have been filed.
The Philadelphia fatal injury lawyers at Cordisco & Saile would like to offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Giselle Moya. We also wish the injured motorcyclist a quick and full recovery from his injuries.
