Wild Wrong-Way Chase Ends in Crash on Pa. Highway

A wild, caught on police pursuit cam came to a violent end when a suspicious DUI driver rushed the wrong way down I-95 hit a car and turned around.

The chaotic ordeal started around three in the morning. Monday outside of Philadelphia International Airport, when a man in a black Ford F-150 was stopped in the lanes of Departures Road outside a terminal, police said.

When the police blew his horn, the Ford driver, later identified as Anthony Colabove, 41, of Wayne, would take off and jumped the median, striking two vehicles.

“Just when we arrived at the Terminal A area, we were thrown back from scratch,” Hayley Albright, who was in one of the vehicles, told NBC10.

Colabove drove further south on I-95 in the northern lanes, according to researchers.

A video, obtained by NBC10, shows that the F-150 is descending the wrong way on the busy highway while police vehicles are running after it.

The video then shows that the pickup collides head-on with a silver, 2019 Hyundai Genesis at Rt. 420. The impact caused the pickup to tip over.

“My head turned and I saw the front grill of the car coming to me,” Colin Miller, the Genesis driver, told NBC10.

Miller, 19, from Glenolden, miraculously left the crash unscathed.

“I think it’s unreal,” Miller said. “I’m sure it will hit me later.”

Miller told NBC10 that he was making test drives with the Hyundai at the time of the crash.

“I’m glad I’m fine and it didn’t happen to anyone else,” he said.

Colabove was taken into custody and then in a stable state at the hospital. He is accused of DUI drug and drug possession. No one else was seriously injured.

Colabove has been accused of having previously driven in the wrong direction, according to legal documents. He pleaded guilty to driving under the influence in 2003 and to intimidation and terrorist threats in 2017.
