Prosecutors say Ricci, of Burlington, Massachusetts, was racing his car in North Hampton in October 2017 when he tried to make a U-turn through a closed crossover and collided with Remigio’s motorcycle.

Remigio, of Somerville, Massachusetts, died at a hospital the next day.

Ricci apologized to Remigio’s family Monday, saying that he accepts responsibility for his “error in judgment.”
