Police say an 18-year-old man heading to a drag racing event in New Hampshire has been charged with negligent homicide in the Interstate 95 death of an off-duty Massachusetts police officer on a motorcycle earlier this month.

A police affidavit says Michael Ricci, of Burlington, Massachusetts, collided with the officer's bike head-on on Oct. 8. after his car went through a closed crossover.

Police say Officer Louis Remigio, of Somerville, Massachusetts, flipped over the front of his bike and landed on the road. He died the next day. Ricci wasn't hurt.

The body of a Massachusetts police officer who died a day after a being involved in a traffic crash in New Hampshire has been returned to the city where he worked.

A hearse carrying the body of Somerville Officer Louis Remigio was escorted by dozens of police officers from multiple departments from Portsmouth, New Hampshire to a Somerville funeral home on Tuesday afternoon.

The 55-year-old Remigio, of Tewksbury, died late Monday after he was involved in a crash on Interstate 95 in North Hampton, New Hampshire on Sunday morning.
