Funeral services will be held Wednesday at noon for 14-year-old Joseph Paul d'Entremont of Bel Air, who was killed by a car while crossing a street Friday night.

D'Entremont, a freshman at Fallston High School, died after being struck while crossing Route 24 where Red Pump Road and Bynum Road intersect about 9:45 p.m.

A viewing will be held at the Mountain Christian Church in Joppa on Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Wednesday from 10 a.m. until noon. The funeral will follow.

Robin A. Monaco, 19, of White Hall, was driving the 2005 Subaru that struck D'Entremont, according to Maryland State Police. Monaco had a green light and d'Entremont had used the crosswalk, police said.

D'Entremont was pronounced dead at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. Monaco wasn't injured.

The accident is under investigation, but preliminary findings indicate that speed wasn't a factor, State Police Tfc. Sean Harris said. Police also had ruled out alcohol playing a role in the accident.

In July, Baltimore County police issued Monaco a speeding ticket, stating he was driving 90 miles per hour, or more than twice the legal speed limit of 35 mph, according to court records. During the July 14 traffic incident, first reported by the news site Bel Air Patch, police also cited Monaco for failure to drive right of center.
