An 85-year-old Warminster man has pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter
PhillyBurbs.com reported Harold Horowitz was sentenced to eight years of probation in Bucks County Court Tuesday. He was also ordered to pay $18,345 in restitution.
Shortly after the accident Warminster Police issued a statement that said Horowitz was traveling westbound in the eastbound lane of Street Road when he attempted to turn right onto St. Davids Avenue, crossing the path of a group of motorcyclists.
The driver of the motorcycle, 27-year-old Eric Hammer of Huntingdon Valley, died at the hospital.
Phillyburbs.com reported a “devastated” Horowitz testified that he made a left turn out of the Ben Wilson Senior Center around 10 p.m. on Oct. 1 and was “stunned” when he saw cars coming at him. They said Horowitz told the court, "I made a right to avoid an accident. I went right, I shouldn't have."
