Horseshoe crab serial killer nonsense. Theories please

Was out drinking from around 1030pm onwards this Saturday in the small town of West Chester, PA. While out, we saw at least 2 individual horseshoe crabs dead in the middle of the road, looking to have been squashed by cars. Indeed we saw several cars run over one of them while we watched from a bar's roof. Was this the cause of death? No idea.
Another witness claimed to have seen at least 2 himself, on the other side of town. Things I know about horseshoe crabs: 1. scary 2. valuable blood 3. do not live in cities
Why would these crabs be so far from the wetlands/ocean? Is there a prank involving these? Best guess is some sort of perverted horseshoe crab crush-fetishist. Curiosity is driving me insane.
