Sunday was supposed to be a special day for Bethany Reale of Mount Holly. Instead, her 13th birthday turned out to be the last day of her life. Bethany Reale was killed when the 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity driven by her mother, 39-year-old Gayla Reale, was struck by a second car at the corner of Creek Road and Hainesport-Mount Laurel Road, just north of Route 38, at about 4:45 p.m. Sunday. She died at Memorial Hospital of Burlington County in Mount Holly at about 5:55 p.m., said state police spokesman Al Della Fave.

ONE DAY, the trials for Cornelius Crawford and Jonathan Rosa will be over, their guilt or innocence decided, their appeals - there are always appeals - resolved. If there's justice, Crawford and Rosa will rot in jail for life for the carnage of last July 25. That morning, they allegedly carjacked a real-estate agent in her Toyota, pinballed psychotically through North Philly then careened onto a sidewalk, killing three kids and their mom. The crash, by the way, was not a "tragic accident," as Crawford's defense lawyer, C.P. Mirarchi III, has had the gall to characterize it. Crawford, he said, never intended to kill anyone.

A Texas public-safety spokesman said Jennifer Strait was riding with two teenage male friends in a car driven by William Allen McDonald, 16, on a rural road outside San Marcos when the car failed to negotiate a curve, skidded sideways, rolled over and landed on its top in a ditch. The spokesman said that "excessive speed" contributed to the accident.

SOME years ago, somebody in Hollywood figured out that you could get a near-certain Oscar nomination by making movies that flattered the creative process. Every year at this time they arrive, timed for awards consideration, and every year I get ready to complain about their craven statue-sniffing. How inconvenient, then, that "Birdman," an act-a-thon about acting and stardom and Hollywood - and a dead-certain Oscar nom for star Michael Keaton - turns out to be such great fun. It features Keaton as washed-up film star Riggan Thompson, famous once in the 1980s for playing a super-hero called "Birdman," now desperately mounting a Broadway comeback, adapting a complex Raymond Carver story.

Friends and relatives recalled Craig Berner - a Moorestown patrolman fatally struck by a truck while off duty - as one of the good guys, who would help even a turtle in need. Berner, a member of the township police department for 26 years, died nearly a year ago on his way to a store when he was thrown from his motorcycle and struck by a pickup truck. Several dozen people gathered Monday evening at Memorial Field on South Church Street for a candlelight vigil to honor Berner and garner support to reopen a criminal investigation into Berner's death.

Kris Dolezel, the coach's wife, was driving her daughter and another teammate in the family vehicle an hour or so ahead of the team bus. The Lions had played at Southern Nazerene in Bethany, Okla.

PHILADELPHIA Police Officer Seth Stellfox, 33, was always looking for an adventure. The cross-country trip he took on his new Harley-Davidson Sportster during the last few weeks was all he had talked about for months, his mother, Jane Stellfox, 67, said yesterday. He rode the motorcycle thousands of miles from his Philadelphia home to see sights in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado and throughout the Midwest, chronicling his trip in photos he posted on his Instagram page.

ARTISTS in older times often painted skulls or sculpted skeletons to remind the masses that they're mortal. Something like that sort of happened on Friday by accident, about noon, on a busy road in Bucks County, when a corpse fell out of a coroner's office van, laid out for all to see. "Just when I thought I've seen everything. That's a dead body on a stretcher that launched out of the back of a coroner's vehicle in Feasterville," eyewitness Jerry Bradley wrote on his Facebook page after snapping a photo.
