HAMBURG, Pa. - A Berks County man has been ordered to stand trial in the death of a 73-year-old man who was struck by a car and killed while walking to his mailbox.
Kenneth Kalbach waived his right Monday morning to a preliminary hearing before District Justice Kim Bagenstose in Hamburg.
Kalbach was driving 84 mph on Old Route 22 in Greenwich Township when his car struck Ferdinand Jacker as he walked across the street to his mailbox on April 25, 2012, said state police, who noted that the posted speed limit is 35 mph.
According to police reports, Kalbach, 49, of Hamburg, said he was speeding because he was late for work that morning.
Kalbach was charged with homicide by vehicle, involuntary manslaughter, careless driving and reckless driving. He remains free on bail pending his next court hearing.
