22-year-old Daniel Pereira plead guilty to reckless driving during an accident in Washington Township that killed Toni Donato-Bolis and her unborn son. Pereira was allegedly texting while driving when his car drifted into the oncoming lanes of traffic, causing the car in front of Donato-Bolis’ to swerved, striking her car head on.
Pereira will pay a $257 fine, lose his license for a year — the maximum penalty for reckless driving — and must attend one anti-distracted driving presentation a year for the next three years.
