Not appropriate. A family lost a father and a husband, leave your opinions out of it.

John - Please think before you type. Perhaps some of his family members may read this. You do not know what happened, you were not in that car. I am all for free speech but please save it for a space other than what is serving as his obituary right now.

NO ONE does the speed limit - wow, what a broad statement. I bet you drive the speed limit every minute you are driving. Condolences to the family for their loss - very innapropriate posting!
John September 05, 2012 at 07:51 PM

No one asked you.

@John ... Were you there? Did you witness it? Do you know the facts? If not, just offer condolences to a family who has just suffered a profound loss. My thoughts and prayers to the family for their tragic loss.
Patch Reader 13 September 05, 2012 at 08:39 PM
This is a very sad and unfortunate event. My thoughts and prayers are with the family in this time of need. As to the inconsiderate person, How is this like "taxes" or "the market"? Leave that out of this unfortunate and sad happenstance. There is no reason to bring those types of politics into this.
Bernadette Russell September 05, 2012 at 09:42 PM
My sympathy to the family at this time!
Sean September 05, 2012 at 09:44 PM
@John, if you knew Dave at all, which your statement proves you did not, you would know he very rarely went over the speed limit. He loved his mustang, I can almost hear him complaining about it getting rained on. Gonna miss you buddy.
Doug Berger September 05, 2012 at 10:05 PM
My thoughts and prayers are with David's wife and two lovely children. I'm devastated and can only imagine your pain and grief.

@ sean- I may have known him via car shows as I too have a Mustang of the same era I show.. My guess he was stressed about getting it home out of the rain and maybe lost concentration?:( pm more info about him and his car, sean..

@John & Frank. Were either of you in the car or at least a witness to the accident. Oh, you weren't. So how can you tell from a short article what really caused the accident? It could have been caused by a blown tire or god knows what. A family is in mourning; I know what a hellish situation that is like all too well. Respect the family and give them your kind and sincere condolences. Let the investigators determine what caused the accident. They know all the facts - which is much more than either of you or even I know My prayers go out to the Koloski family and friends in this time of mourning.

I couldnt agree more
Jack Fisk September 06, 2012 at 10:21 AM
Wow John your an A#? cut and dry!!! Dave was the safest guy I knew. I worked with him for 10 yrs and that mustang was his world next to his family and dog. I would almost garrentee that he was pissed the car was getting wet and wanted to dry it off so the paint didn't get stained. He would park it next to the building at work so no one could park next to it so to assume he was speeding is totally out of line. My heart goes out to his family. He was a great guy. God bless you buddie!! God speed!!
FbS September 06, 2012 at 10:51 AM
Ric- .. I did not mean any disrespect with my last post. I was just speculating because I know how car guys think.. Because I am one.. as was Dave. Our prayers go out to his family..
Ronald Montana September 06, 2012 at 12:00 PM
I would like to clear the air. Dave was a co worker and friend of mine for close to ten years. I was 20 years old and new to the business. He took the time to look after me and help me grow in my industry and gave me much advice. His 2006 mustang gt was his pride and joy he took great care of it and was a safe.. Law abiding driver. The only time he raced that car was at atco raceway a few times a year. Something happened that we may never understand. What I do know is his wife and 2 daughters will never get to hold him or see him again. Why do u feel the need to blame someone? I'm so sad and sorry for his family and I will truly miss Dave and work will just never be the same. R I P my friend and mentor. - bob miller

I don't know why it says my name is ronald Montana.. It's Bob miller!
Karen Hammon September 06, 2012 at 02:13 PM
I was shocked and very saddened to hear about Dave. My heart goes out to his wife and daughters. We will keep them in our prayers.
Chip September 06, 2012 at 04:03 PM
Prayers to all involved. Sounds like Dave was one of the good people in life!
Steve Iantosca September 06, 2012 at 05:21 PM
I worked with Dave at the Firestone on Bustleton in the nineties. He was a great guy. Condolences to the family
Lou Greco September 06, 2012 at 09:29 PM
Dave is the most loyal safe and stand up guy I ever met in my lifetime! I will miss everything about him.His wit , Great humor and our phone calls were the best , I have a void i won't ever fill! Dave thank you for the greatest memories that will live on for me forever!!!
Joey Cappello September 07, 2012 at 01:32 AM
I only worked with Dave a handful of times but I could tell that he was a good man. It's nice to see that everyone else who knew him feels the same way. My condolences go out to his wife and daughters, family and anyone who knew or worked with him. RIP Dave, you will be missed. - Joe Cappello from Bustleton Firestone

Its a terrible tradgety, I never met Dave, but I am sure he was a proud father and husband that will be missed. I drive past his house on Branch pike daily, I had the unfortunate timing of driving past the sceene shortly after the accident. I did see the car first hand and there is no way it was only 30/35 mph crash. I believe he was probably speeding. Now with that I do not mean he was tearing off down the road at 90 and racing. Its very easy to hit 45/50 on Branch Pike just crusing down the road. I drive Branch Pike every day and routinely catch myself going well over the posted 35 mph limit. Its sooooo very easy to do. Combine that with a slick road and I could see how easy it is to accidentaly loose control of a car. The truely sad thing here is that it was just dumb luck to hit that pole in the dirve side door. A couple feet in either direction and I have no doubt he would have walked away with only a broken heart over his beloved Mustang. The drivers door is the worst possible place to get hit, it offers the least amount of protection. Side airbags help but I dont believe the 06 Mustag had side bags. Very sad I am truely sorry to hear he did not survive. Its not fair, he sounds like a great guy who will be dearly missed. My condolences to the family. BTW, @John I read your original post before it was removed... you are a true retard...
FbS September 07, 2012 at 11:35 AM
You are correct about 06 Mustangs not having side air bags. 07 was the first year for side bags..
FbS September 07, 2012 at 11:58 PM
Woe I just found out my father in Law was friends with Dave and bought many tires from him over in the NE.. Said he was a wonderful person and loved his Mustang. My Father in law also has a Mustang GT.. RIP Dave
John September 09, 2012 at 04:02 PM
hey get the story straight, I said other factors were involved and it was not just rain so who is the A#.....all U want to do is blame someone, no one can replace a loss I know I lost my wife.....if people take it the wrong way I am sorry........
Greg Stepp September 10, 2012 at 12:16 PM
I was shocked to hear news . Dave was wonderful person a proud father and husband ! I will miss his sense of humor ! My prayers go out to his family.. RIP my friend
concerned town person September 20, 2012 at 05:18 PM
So very sad to hear this news. I think we all need to pray for his family and know when a person has a good heart they are already at peace but that their loved ones need to have extra kindness and love around them.
Joann Kelleher September 28, 2012 at 04:18 PM
Dave was a kind and loving husband, father, friend etc to all who knew him. My prayers are with Dave and my sister, nieces and animals. He will never be forgotten. We will get through this as a family. We are strong. We will stick together.
