Bar Bill Suggests Driver In Wrong-Way Fatal Had Been Drinking Heavily

A Bucks County man accused of driving drunk down the wrong side of I-95, striking and killing a Philadelphia police officer, had consumed a large quantity of beer and hard liquor.
Police say 47-year-old John Leck Jr.’s last known location prior to the crash was TGI Friday’s on Street Road in Bensalem, where his bar bill shows that he had three 22-ounce Coors Lights, one 14-ounce Coors Light and two Three Olives Vodka drinks.

He paid the bill at 1:16 am, nearly two hours before he struck and killed 48-year-old officer Brian Lorenzo, who was riding his patrol motorcycle to his home in the far northeast early Sunday morning when Leck, of Levittown, struck him head-on just south of the Cottman Avenue interchange.  Leck is charged with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence.
