Murder charges in fiery NY crash that killed 3
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — A central New York driver involved in a fiery crash that killed three people has been indicted on murder charges.
Prosecutors say Anthony Saccone drank and used cocaine before running a red light at over 80 miles an hour in a 35 mph zone in February.
The Post-Standard says relatives of both Saccone and the crash victims cried Monday as an Onondaga (ahn-uhn-DAH’-gah) County judge set bail at $1 million cash or $2 million bond.
The crash killed 19-year-old Baylie Rose and her passengers, 18-year-old Michael Walker and 20-year-old Samra Osmanovic (SAM’-ruh ahs-MAN’-uh-vihk.)
Walker and Osmanovic were students at Onondaga Community College. Rose was taking a break from school to work.
The defense describes Saccone as a stay-at-home father with two young children who has no criminal record.
