In a tragic coincidence, two crashes that have left three people dead and at least nine others injured in Philadelphia since the start of the year were preceded by car chases that began in Delaware and made their way up I-95.
And in a third scary case during the same period, police chased a naked man driving the wrong way on I-95 from Wilmington to Philadelphia International Airport before stopping him.
The crash that left three dead occurred on Packer Avenue in the early hours of Jan. 2, when a car driven by Keith Campbell, 29, of Newport. Del., slammed into an SUV with four people returning from a party after the Mummers parade, according to police. Campbell crossed the line and slammed head-on into the other vehicle after repeatedly stabbing himself.
