Eight months later, Anthony Lomonaco, 59, admitted to careless driving in the collision that took Casey’s life and he was fined $200 at Ocean City Municipal Court. A charge of failure to yield to a pedestrian was dropped.

Police allegedly said that Lomonaco was trying to place his iced tea in the passenger-side cup holder of his van when he accelerated through the intersection without seeing Casey on the crosswalk.
