The incident occurred near the area of 35th and Glendale avenues.
According to police, one vehicle was traveling northbound on North 35th Avenue approaching the intersection of West Glendale Avenue.
The driver later identified as Shanika Bennett, 33, attempted to brake to avoid hitting a vehicle in the roadway, but was unable to slow or stop due to possible mechanical issues with her vehicle.
