GREENWICH - Family and friends are mourning the death of a Marine from Greenwich who was killed in a car crash in New York this past weekend.

Police say Lance Cpl. Joseph Schiano lost control of his car and hit a utility pole Sunday afternoon.

New York state troopers say Schiano was driving at a high rate of speed on Route 139 in Westchester when he lost control of his car, drove across the road and hit a utility pole.

Schiano's mother says despite this difficult time, she is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from the community.

She says she plans on starting a scholarship fund at Greenwich High School in her son's name.
