Family of man killed in accident on bridge reacts to homicide charges

READING, Pa. -

The agony continues for the family of a Reading man who was killed in what police said was an intentional car crash on the Bingaman Street Bridge.

Lance Quiñones died when his car was intentionally hit by Bradley Wolfe last September, police said.

Wolfe, 32, was in the middle of a heated argument with his wife and reportedly said, "I'm gonna drive right into the first car I see and kill us both," according to court documents.

After Wolfe, 32, from Sinking Spring, turned himself in Wednesday, he offered an apology to Quiñones's family.

"I'm very sorry," Wolfe said.

"We don't need no fake, lame, eight-month later apology," said Quiñone's wife, Natalie Vazquez, adding that since the accident, no one from the Wolfe family reached out to her to offer condolences.

"Nobody said anything. Everybody was quiet because they thought it was going to get swept under the rug. You know the real reason he's sorry, because he finally got charges. That's what he's sorry about."

Lance's then 7-year-old stepdaughter, Rosalya, was miraculously pulled from the wreckage of Quiñone's car. Her mother allowed her to say a few words about her late stepfather.

"He was a good person, and he respected my mom," Rosalya said. "I miss him and I love him, and I wish he would just come back."

Quiñone's brother said he's still heartbroken over what happened.

"It shouldn't have took so long for him to apologize. If he wanted to kill him and his girl, or wife, or whatever, he should have just did that instead of taking somebody elses life," said Quiñone's brother.

Despite the apology, Wolfe's attorney said his client denies the charges of intentionally running his car into Quiñones' vehicle.

Wolfe is being held in the Berks County Jail without bail on a third degree murder charge.
