A day after the driver in last winter’s triple-fatal crash near OCC requested to withdraw his guilty plea, he said he accepts responsibility for his actions and is prepared to go to prison because of them.
Anthony Saccone, 30, of Camillus, spoke to CNYCentral in an exclusive off-camera interview from behind bars at the Onondaga County Justice Center on Tuesday. He said he thinks about the victims of the crash every day and wants their families to know that he is filled with remorse and regret.
Saccone pleaded guilty back in July to his role in the Feb. 23 crash that killed three people. Saccone admitted he was under the influence of alcohol and cocaine, and driving at excessive speeds when he T-boned a Chevrolet Impala that was going through an intersection in Onondaga.
The Impala was carrying Samra Osmanovic, 20, Baylie Rose, 19, and Michael Walker, 18, all of whom were current or former students at Onondaga County Community College. All three were killed instantly in the crash.
