Santarelli dies from crash injuries
Ken Santarelli, owner of Santarelli and Sons Oil in Blakely, died Tuesday at Geisinger Community Medical Center from injuries he suffered in a car crash more than a week ago, Lackawanna County Coroner Tim Rowland said.
Santarelli, 51, of Peckville, drove a Ferrari along Gino Merli Drive in Blakely on Nov. 5 and collided with a parked car and tree with such force it split the sports car in half.
Blakely police investigated. Police Chief Guy Salerno declined Tuesday to say what caused the crash.
