Attorneys Struck in Center City Accident

Two attorneys were injured on Friday after an SUV ran onto the sidewalk on Locust Street near 15th Street. William Harvey, name partner of Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg & Ellers was struck and fell on his face, according to a firm spokeswoman.

She said he had primarily facial injuries and could be discharged from the hospital as early as today or tomorrow. She said there was never anything life threatening, and Harvey is “resting comfortably” at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

The spokeswoman said it was sheer coincidence that the car struck two attorneys. They were not walking together and had not known each other, she said.

There was no answer at the office of the second victim, solo practitioner David S. Winston. The spokesperson said Winston was much more seriously injured.

According to The (Philadelphia) Daily News, Winston was pinned under the SUV and sustained rib and leg injuries as well as a ruptured spleen. ~Gina Passarella, Staff Reporter
