Teen Faces Vehicular Homicide Charge

wnpv_police_beatA 17-year-old Montgomery County boy is accused of causing a woman’s death after losing control of his speeding car. 81-year-old Zita Egitto was fatally injured two weeks ago on Reed Street in Willow Grove, just off York Road near Upper Moreland High School.  She was on the sidewalk, walking to meet a friend, when the car hit her.  Police say the teen tried to turn a corner while going at least 79 miles per hour in a zone posted for 35 miles per hour.  Investigators found he tried to make a left turn onto Reed Street in front of opposing traffic by applying his emergency brake in an attempt to slide around the turn, a maneuver commonly known as drifting.  It was depicted in the movie “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.”  He lost control when the rear wheels locked up.  After striking her he continued up an embankment and struck a building as the victim flew onto the porch.  Investigators say the teen was driving from morning classes at the Eastern Center for Arts and Technology to other classes at Upper Moreland High School when the incident occurred.  He is charged with homicide by vehicle.  The victim, who lived in Willow Grove for 51 years, leaves behind five sons and 15 grandchildren.
