    "PHILADELPHIA (CBS 3) ―
    A driver with a lengthy criminal record is facing charges after a collision in Port Richmond that claimed the life of a veteran Philadelphia police sergeant late Monday night.

    Sergeant Timothy Simpson, 46, was reportedly responding to a robbery call when he was involved in a crash with a black Camaro at the intersection of Allegheny and Aramingo Avenues at about 10:30 p.m.

    Witnesses reported the Camaro was traveling at a high rate of speed and had run a red light at the time of the collision. The impact sent Sgt. Simpson's cruiser into a nearby building while the Camaro struck a light pole.

    Rescue crews rushed Simpson to Temple University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at about 11:05 p.m."

    Another Philly officer has been killed in the line of duty..so incredibly sad and such a difficult time for the police and the city. And again another officer is killed by a many time offender.. this one 20 times he has been lockedup.. paroled just 3 days prior to this tragedy.

    My sympathies to the family, friends and officers who worked with Mr Simpson.

    I hate to read this, it bothers me more than anyone could know. I feel bad for his family and fellow officers.
