Mid-Air Collision (???)

Greetings.

The other day while controlling at PHL, I was penalized for a mid-air collision (Oh, the humanity! 🙂 ) of two incoming flights. They were cleared on land on Runway 26 and still a few miles out. I probably could have avoided this by diverting one to 27L or 27R. But...am I wrong to presume that TRACON/Approach would sequence incoming flights safely?  I can't recall the separation but they were NOT nose-to-tail close on radar. Any guidance would be appreciated. I prefer to avoid future "Mid-flight Passenger Exchanges." 😉  Leon

You can’t presume anything. Especially when you have no control over speed and you are getting the handoff off 20 miles out. Plus using runway 26 is highly questionable.
