Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Audubon Police Chief Thomas Tassi reported a man has been charged in connection with a fatal crash in the borough.
Ethan Albino, 26, of Haddon Township, was charged on Monday with one count of first-degree death by auto for causing the death of Julianne Mazzarella, 33, of Berlin Township. He was also charged with two counts of third-degree assault by auto for the injuries of his passengers, a 26-year-old Cherry Hill man and 25-year-old Haddon Township man.
The crash occurred at approximately 5:10 a.m. on September 26 at Kings Highway and White Horse Pike. The investigation revealed Albino was traveling north on Kings Highway in a black Volkswagen Jetta when he failed to stop at a red traffic signal and crashed into Mazzarella, who was traveling west on the White Horse Pike in a red Pontiac Sunfire.
Mazzarella was deceased at the scene. Albino was transported to Cooper University Hospital in Camden for treatment of his injuries.
Toxicology testing showed Albino’s blood-alcohol content was 0.12 percent.
Albino surrendered at Audubon Police headquarters today after authorities notified his attorney that he was being charged. His bail is set at $150,000.
All persons charged with criminal offenses are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law.
Released Monday, October 26, 2015.
