PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A man who apparently stabbed himself before driving into an SUV in Philadelphia, killing three people, has been arraigned from his hospital bed on homicide charges.
Bail was set at $1.75 million for 29-year-old Keith Campbell after Monday’s arraignment.
Witnesses told police Campbell crossed the median into oncoming traffic while speeding before crashing into the SUV Wednesday.
Two of the three killed were members of a string band that had performed in the annual New Year’s Day Mummers Parade. A fourth person suffered a broken pelvis and other injuries.
Campbell, of Bear, Delaware, is charged with three counts of homicide by vehicle in the deaths of Dennis Palandro Jr., Joseph Ferry and Kelly Wiseley. He also faces one count of aggravated assault and related charges.
