READING, Pa. -

A man accused of intentionally causing a deadly crash in Reading last year is now free on bail.

Bradley Wolfe was originally committed to the Berks County Jail on Wednesday without bail after surrendering to authorities on a charge of third degree murder.

Wolfe's attorney, Allan Sodomsky, however, requested a bail hearing for his client, which was held Friday. A judge set bail for Wolfe at $25,000.

Wolfe intentionally drove his car head-on into another vehicle as he drove across Bingaman Street Bridge on the afternoon of Sept. 5, police said.

"I'm gonna drive right into the first car I see and kill us both," Wolfe allegedly told his wife, Jennifer, as the two argued in the car, according to court documents.

The driver of the other car, Lance Quinones, 24, died at the scene. His 7-year-old stepdaughter was injured.

Wolfe has denied the accusations against him. He's due back in court for a preliminary hearing on July 16.
