Minivan driver involved in sports car crash dies

The driver of a minivan that was involved in a horrific three-car crash in Southwest Philadelphia on Friday died shortly after 7 this morning at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, police said.

Relatives said Bruce Hunter, 41, suffered an array of devastating injuries from the crash, including a crushed pelvis, broken arm, broken leg and collapsed lung. Hunter was married with five children, who ranged in age from 4 to 25.

The longtime West Philadelphia resident enjoyed coaching youth basketball teams, his family said. Hunter had planned on taking his kids to New York on Friday night for a weekend basketball tournament, but never made it home.

According to police, retired Brookhaven police officer Adam Brown lost control of his speeding Lamborghini on Essington Avenue near Bartram at about 6:30 p.m. Friday. The Lamborghini crossed into the opposite lane of traffic and struck Hunter's Mercury minivan and a Subaru Forester. The 45-year-old driver of the Subaru suffered minor injuries.

Brown, 29, and his passenger Geoffrey Kleiman, 60, died at the scene.
