State Police are investigating an accident on the Schuylkill Expressway in Philadelphia that ended with an off-duty trooper losing his life. Cpl. John Quigg, Jr. was traveling west in the eastbound lanes around 1:00 am when he struck another vehicle. The crash left the 23-year old driver of the other vehicle in serious condition.
The other driver, a college graduate headed to law school, was wearing her seatbelt. Quigg was not.
Quigg, 48, had been scheduled to appear in court later that morning on a December 2009 charge of driving under the influence in Pennsylvania. Officials are waiting for the results of toxicology tests to determine if alcohol was involved in Wednesday morning’s crash.
