According to The Times Herald, 34-year-old Benjamin Joseph Kane waived his Wednesday hearing in an Oreland district court and charges of vehicular manslaughter, aggravated assault ond others were held in connection with the Oct. 22, 2012 Turnpike crash that took the life of PennDOT worker Michael SanFelice.
Kane, of West Conshohocken, is accused of crashing his truck into a work zone on the Turnpike and killing 66-year-old Michael SanFelice, of West Norriton, who was working on the scene.
