The celebration was scheduled for Saturday, but one day before the accident, Adam Brown decided to take the exotic sports car out for a spin.
"I just don't think he knew how fast that car was," Michelle Brown, Adam’s wife said for the Daily News. "Every day he just wanted us to be happy. And I can say, for him, that he lived every day to the fullest."
The 29-year-old driver was speeding along Essington Avenue near Bartram in the 2005 red Lamborghini when he lost control during a turn and crashed into a Plymouth Voyager minivan and a Subaru Forester, as the police report stated.
Brown’s passenger, 60-year-old Geoffrey Kleiman, died in the crash. Kleiman was a friend and also a business partner of Adam. The driver of the minivan, Bruce Hunter, 41, was take to the hospital with serious chest, abdomen and leg injuries, but unfortunately he died Monday morning. Only the 45-year old driver of the Forester suffered minor injuries.
Adam Brown joined the Brookhaven police when he was only 19 years old. he stayed in the force for five years, when he founded in parallel the Home Helpers of Drexel Hill, which provided home care to seniors, working parents and those who needed recuperative service.
He retired from the police in 2004 to devote more time to his family and Home Helpers. Unfortunately, his family didn’t have the time to enjoy his presence for long, since due to this crash, Brown left behind two children: a 4-year-old girl and a 14-month-old boy.
