Remigio died at the hospital late Monday night.

Police say Michael Ricci was drag racing when he swerved into oncoming traffic on Interstate 95 in North Hampton, New Hampshire, on Sunday and struck Officer Louis Remigio.

The driver, Michael Ricci of Burlington, was released on $10,000 cash bail Monday after being charged with felony reckless conduct and is due to be arraigned on October 20, when he could face further charges.

Chief of Police David Fallon and Mayor Joseph Curtatone said in a statement that the crash was "completely avoidable".

At this time, no official fund has been established for Remigio.

He is scheduled to be arraigned October 20 in Rockingham County Superior Court.

Remigio, a 30-year veteran of the Somerville Police Department, was off duty when his motorcycle was hit by a auto that witnesses said was racing other vehicles.

Ricci was released on $10,000 bail pending his arraignment October 20 on a charge of felony reckless conduct. Please pay attention, and watch where you're going.'.

A 63-year-old Wells, Maine, man was also injured in the crash.

The decorations included two life-saving awards, a meritorious service award, a beyond the call of duty award, and numerous commendations from fellow officers and community members. His vehicle struck Ricci's vehicle from behind following the initial collision between Ricci's and Remigio's vehicles, according to state police.

"Louis does it all, and seeks no recognition", the department wrote in a Facebook post.
