    And even if it was his fault, I'm thinking the other person involved is still feeling some repercussions, sad for all involved. The streets are not the place to screw around, as much fun as it feels like at the time, when stuff like this happens, it has wider effects than we think about when we are just having some "fun". :(

    I suggest we discuss the accident dynamics in a new thread and leave this one as the one for Michael.

    Latest news story:


    “He was my pride and joy.”

    That’s what Ralph Romeo called his son Michael, 39, who died Wednesday from injuries he suffered in a two-car accident on Mearns Road on Monday afternoon.

    Michael was the youngest of the Willow Grove resident’s three sons.

    Ralph Romeo said Thursday that funeral arrangements were still being worked on but that Michael will be buried Tuesday. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Vincent de Paul Church in Richboro.

    Michael Romeo, who operated a garage door business, was married and the father of three boys — twin sons, 9, and a 7-year-old.

    His father said that friends and family are putting together details for a fund for his widow and children.

    Also on Thursday, Warwick police said speed caused the crash that claimed Romeo’s life and injured Karen Gold, 56, of Doylestown, the driver of the other vehicle.

    The accident occurred when Romeo’s Camaro, which police said was traveling south on Mearns Road at a high rate of speed, went into the northbound lane at a curve in the road. The car was sideways in the northbound lane when it was struck near the driver’s door by Gold’s car, which was traveling north on Mearns.

    Police said they had not yet determined how fast the Camaro was going. They said there is no evidence to suggest any violations on the part of the other driver.

    +1 agreed, this event should be a reminder of what can happen and our loved ones will be the ones who are left behind to get along without us.

    I said don't make this a blame/analysis thread. [EDIT] PLEASE.

    We do not know what happened.

    I deer could have run out in front of him, hit the right/left side of the car and forced it into the oncoming lane. The lady may have been speeding.

    We just do not know.
