BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police have released new video of a crash that killed a Stamford man on Father's Day.

Surveillance cameras from nearby businesses captured the crash on Main Street near Fairview Avenue. The footage shows the driver speeding before the impact and the subsequent fireball.

Police say the driver that hit Petey Soto's car was going anywhere from 94 to over 100 mph in an area with a 25 mph limit.

A memorial for Soto remains at the site more than two weeks later.

Police say the driver is recovering from serious injuries at St. Vincent's Medical Center. They say he's expected to be charged with vehicular homicide. Police also ran toxicology tests to determine whether the driver was drinking prior to the crash.

Soto left behind a son and daughter ages 5 and 4, respectively. The family has set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for them.

Soto would have turned 32 years old Tuesday.
