    Dennis Palandro (31), Kelly Wiseley (35) and Joseph Ferry (36) died when a suicidal driver crashed into their vehicle

    Three people, including two Mummers, were killed and a fourth person was critically injured early Wednesday when their SUV was hit head-on in South Philadelphia by a car driven by a possibly suicidal man who appeared to have self-inflicted stab wounds.

    Police said the car's driver, Keith Campbell, 29, who has numerous addresses in Delaware, may have stabbed himself 15 to 20 times in the chest and stomach before crashing into the other vehicle. He remained in critical condition Wednesday night at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital.

    Police Capt. Mark Overwise, commander of the Accident Investigation District, said the four victims in the SUV apparently were returning home from a party at the South Philadelphia String Band clubhouse when the crash occurred about 1:45 a.m. on the 600 block of Packer Avenue, near the stadium complex.

    Overwise said Campbell was driving a 2014 Audi A4 west at a high speed when he crossed the center line and slammed into an eastbound 2015 Acura RDX.

    Killed were Joseph Ferry, 36, of South Philadelphia, the driver of the SUV; Kelly Wiseley, 35, of Glenolden; and Dennis Palandro, 31, of Morton, police said. Palandro's 30-year-old wife suffered numerous injuries and was in critical condition at Jefferson.

    Ferry and Palandro were members of the South Philadelphia String Band, which came in second in its category at Tuesday's Mummers Parade. Palandro was the son of Denny Palandro, the band's captain. Wiseley was the daughter of retired Folcroft Borough Police Sgt. William Wiseley, the department said in a tweet Wednesday evening.

    Philadelphia Police Chief Inspector Scott Small has told other news outlets that investigators found a note inside Campbell's car, which he characterized as "rambling, paranoid, strange."

    The Philadelphia Police Department, however, said it would not confirm what Small is quoted as saying because it "does not discuss or confirm any potential evidence before the District Attorney's Office has had the chance to review."

    Bail for a Delaware man who was driving a car that slammed head-on into a Mazda sport utility vehicle, killing three people with connections to the Mummers including two from Delaware County, has been set at $1.75 million, authorities said Monday.

    Keith Campbell, 29, of Bear, remains hospitalized and was formally arraigned at bedside on three counts of homicide by vehicle and related offenses involving the deaths of 35-year-old Kelly Wiseley of Glenolden, 31-year-old Dennis Palandro Jr. of Morton and 36-year-old Joseph Ferry of South Philadelphia.

    Campbell suffered multiple wounds that authorities say appear to have been self-inflicted, was previously charged with four counts of accidents involving death or bodily injury following the early Jan. 2 crash in South Philadelphia. A knife, along with what authorities described as a ?rambling? written note, were found in his vehicle, an Audi.

    I will never understand why a suicidal person takes other people's lives, too. Makes me mad and sad. RIP to the deceased.
