Arrest made in car crash that killed 2 teens

A 19-year-old Willow Grove man was arrested on Thursday in connection with a June 1 car accident on Grant Avenue that claimed the life of two of his passengers.

Dylan Urbanowski turned himself in at the 15th Police District to face charges in a two-car crash on Grant Avenue, just west of Bustleton Avenue.

The deceased passengers were Mike Jacoby, of Fox Chase, and Sebastian Plummer, of Morrell Park, both of whom were seated in the rear of the car.

Jacoby, 18, was set to graduate from Northeast High and play football at Millersville. Plummer died of a brain injury on June 6 at Abington Hospital, three days after his 19th birthday.

Passengers William Eddis and William Johnson received serious injuries, but survived.

Police said Urbanowski was driving a 2007 Honda west on Grant Avenue at a high rate of speed at 10:35 p.m. when he lost control of his vehicle, which slid sideways and crossed over into eastbound lanes, where it was struck by a 2019 Acura heading in the opposite direction.

The impact and rotation caused Urbanowski and the three rear passengers to be ejected from the vehicle. They were transported to local hospitals.

Urbanowski is facing charges of Homicide by Vehicle, Homicide by Vehicle while DUI, Aggravated Assault while DUI, Aggravated Assault by Vehicle, Accident involving death with no license, Involuntary Manslaughter, DUI, recklessly endangering another person, Reckless Driving and Operating a vehicle while Underage DUI. ••
