Report: Cop killed in Bronx wrong-way crash was sober

THE BRONX - An off-duty officer from The Bronx who was killed in a wrong-way collision back in March was sober at the time of the crash, according to a toxicology report.

The results found 29-year-old Reginald Velez was not drinking or using drugs when he crashed head-on into a tractor-trailer on I-95.

Velez had been a police officer in Mount Vernon, where the police commissioner said fatigue may have played a role in his death.
