The state police corporal who died in a wrong-way crash on the Schuylkill Expressway had a blood-alcohol level three times the legal threshold for intoxication at the time of the crash, authorities said Thursday.

Cpl. John Quigg Jr.'s blood alcohol was measured at 0.27 percent, the Philadelphia Medical Examiner's Office said. That meant he was severely intoxicated early Wednesday when he steered his gold Honda Accord west into the eastbound lanes and struck a Mercury Marquis driven by Chantelle Harper, 23, of South Philadelphia.
