Two Ferrari drivers charged with vehicular homicide in New Jersey
Two men, have been indicted on aggravated manslaughter charges in the death of a Kinnelon man who was killed when he was hit head-on while riding his motorcycle in East Rutherford, New Jersey in May 2012. A Bergen County grand jury also charged Joseph Ferretti and Joseph Meyer in the indictment with vehicular homicide for reckless driving which led to the death of 56-year-old Stephen Lenge, the owner of a popular record store in Cliffside Park. Lenge, a married father of two teenage daughters, was riding his motorcycle to work shortly before 8 a.m. on Mother’s Day heading for the weekend’s Electric Daisy Carnival music festival at MetLife Stadium.
Police said Ferretti and Meyer were driving Ferraris on Berry’s Creek Road when Meyer lost control while negotiating a curve. Ferretti, who was behind him, then lost control of his car and crossed over into oncoming traffic, hitting Lenge head-on according to police. Both were driving “at a high rate of speed,” police said, on a road where the speed limit is 25 mph. Lenge was pronounced dead at the scene while Meyer and Ferretti were taken to an area hospital where they were treated for minor to moderate injuries and released. Both men could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted of the aggravated manslaughter charges.
