Police Release Photo Of Sergeant Charged In Fatal Car Crash

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Police released Wednesday a photo of Sgt. Thomas Winkis, who was involved in a crash that killed a man in Northeast Philadelphia.

Winkis is charged with vehicular homicide, DUI and involuntary manslaughter.

Investigators say Winkis was drunk, and driving about 100 mph when he caused a crash on Ashburner Street that killed 55-year-old David Farries in Holmesburg.

FOX 29 News got exclusive video last week of Winkis wearing a baseball cap as he turned in his gun and his badge.

Then, Tuesday morning, Winkis turned himself in to police. He was later released when he posted bail.
