Philly man arrested for killing pedestrian with car, attempting to destroy evidence in fire

- Philadelphia Police have arrested the man who they say is responsible for striking and killing Sean Patrick Granger of Douglasville, Pa. on I-76 in late July.

On July 22, the suspect allegedly struck Granger on I-76 Eastbound, then fled the scene.

After investigating, officers discovered that the driver — 29-year-old Julius R. Crabbe of Philadelphia — conspired with the vehicle’s owner to set the car on fire in an attempt to destroy the evidence. A fictitious stolen vehicle report was subsequently filed by the car’s owner.

Officers also learned that Crabbe possessed two separated Pennsylvania Driver’s Licenses, one of which is suspended.

Crabbe was arrested on Friday and is being held without bail. He has been charged with Involuntary Manslaughter, Reckless Burning, Homicide by Vehicle, Homicide by Vehicle while Driving Under the Influence and related offenses.
