A man accused of intentionally causing a crash that killed the driver of another car in Reading will stand trial for murder.
Bradley Wolfe appeared before a district judge for a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
The judge decided that prosecutors have enough evidence against Wolfe for his case to proceed to trial.
Wolfe intentionally drove his car head-on into another vehicle as he crossed the Bingaman Street Bridge on the afternoon of Sept. 5 2012, according to court documents.
"I'm gonna drive right into the first car I see and kill us both," Wolfe allegedly told his wife, Jennifer.
The driver of the other car, Lance Quinones, 24, died at the scene. His 7-year-old stepdaughter was injured.
Bradley Wolfe suffered severe injuries to his legs; Jennifer Wolfe suffered moderate injuries.
"He tried to kill us," Jennifer told paramedics who treated her, according to court documents. "He just went right for the car. We were going really fast."
Investigators estimated the Wolfes' car was traveling between 46 and 50 mph when it crossed the center line and struck Quinones's car.
Wolfe is facing charges of 3rd degree murder, attempted homicide, aggravated assault, homicide by vehicle, possessing an instrument of a crime, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and reckless driving.
