The Reading Eagle, reporting on the accident said that Jack Churico, an 80 year old make passed away at Reading Hospital due to injuries to his abdomen and chest that resulted in a head-on collision with a sport utility vehicle.  The accident happened just a few blocks away from Mr. Churico’s house as he was driving his pick-up truck down Cotton Street when it collided with the SUV.  There was no information available pertaining to the driver of the SUV.

Emergency medical services were called to the accident scene just before 5 o’clock in the evening and found Mr. Churico unresponsive following the accident.  He was pronounced dead after being transported to Reading Hospital by an attending physician just after 6:30 that evening.
