Murder charge filed in fatal Pa. bridge collision

READING, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in eastern Pennsylvania have filed a murder charge against a man accused of having deliberately driven his car into another vehicle on a bridge last year.

Thirty-two-year-old Bradley Wolfe of Reading is charged in Berks County with third-degree murder, attempted homicide, aggravated assault, homicide by vehicle and other counts in the Sept. 5 crash in Reading.

Prosecutors allege that Wolfe was irate and told his wife “I’m going to drive right into the first car I see and kill us both.”

Moments later, they say, their car crossed the center line and hit an oncoming vehicle, killing 24-year-old Lance Quinones and injuring his 7-year-old stepdaughter.

The Reading Eagle said Wolfe was scheduled to surrender with his attorney Wednesday; a listed number for him couldn’t be found Tuesday.
