CAMDEN, N.J. -- In the seconds before Gov. Jon S. Corzine was critically injured in an accident Thursday, the Chevrolet Suburban he was riding in was traveling 91 miles an hour, 26 more than the posted speed limit, according to a crash data recorder retrieved from the vehicle. State Police Superintendent Joseph R. Fuentes said yesterday that the trooper driving the vehicle, Robert J. Rasinski, told investigators he had not known how fast he was traveling as he led Corzine's two-car motorcade, with the vehicle's emergency lights flashing, from Atlantic City, where Corzine had given a speech, to a meeting at the governor's mansion in Princeton.

Editor: Today I witnessed what can only be described as utter stupidity and disregard for human life. I was traveling on Route 24 North to Bel Air and had just crossed over Singer Road. It was 5:35. I noticed an ambulance approximately seven or eight cars back and immediately pulled over to the right shoulder as did the car behind me. NO ONE ELSE DID! Naturally when the ambulance caught up to the rest of the cars near Wheel Road and approached their rear bumpers all the cars scattered everywhere - the left shoulder, the right shoulder, some stayed in the left lane, some stayed in the right lane and, of course, the ambulance was held up until they could clear the jam. All along Route 24 there are signs telling you to move to the shoulder for emergency vehicles.

The family of a Rosedale woman killed in January when her car was hit by a police cruiser has tentatively settled a multimillion-dollar wrongful death lawsuit filed against the officer and the Baltimore County Police Department, a lawyer representing the victim's children said yesterday. Bonnie Pappas, 45, was killed Jan. 8 after an officer responding to a 911 call broad-sided her car as she drove across Pulaski Highway near Lorraine Avenue in Rosedale. Baltimore County prosecutors decided last month not to file criminal charges against Ray Pabon, a patrol officer assigned to the White Marsh precinct who drove the cruiser that struck the woman's car. Bill Toohey, a spokesman with the county Police Department, said that an internal administrative investigation into the crash is continuing and that he could not discuss whether disciplinary action had been taken against Pabon, who returned to work after recovering from injuries.
