SOMERVILLE, MASS. (WHDH) - Driving records show that a teenager charged in a crash that resulted in the death of an off-duty Somerville police officer over the weekend already had three citations in 2017.

Remigio, who was on a motorcycle, was taken to an area hospital. He passed away Monday night.
Ricci was cited for driving without a registration in September, speeding in August, and a surchargeable accident in July, according to Registry of Motor Vehicle records.
The teenager was ordered held on $10,000 bail, which he later posted. He’s due in court later this month.
Ricci faces reckless driving charges. It’s not clear if additional charges will be filed.
