Condolences to the family. RIP to the young man. To the writer, the accident occurred Friday, not Saturday night, as the headline stated: "Man was walking on the Route 80 ramp heading to Route 46 late Saturday night when he was struck by a car and later died." The correct spelling of his name is Michael, not: "Micahel Pascrell"

Dan. I suggest the Patch invests in a spell check for you. Always many spelling errors in your articles. Is this a professional paper? Deep condolences to the family. Horrible tragedy.

My prayers go to Theresa and her family. I can't even begin to imagine what they are all going through. My daughter is friends with Theresa and our hearts and prayers are with her at this very difficult time! As for Dan, I think you do a wonderful job keeping the Wayne residents up to date with everything, thank you.
