A family plans funeral services for a soldier who died in a car crash while home on leave from Iraq.
20 year old Phillip Diaferio was from Endicott.
He was driving the car that went off the road and hit a tree on Nanticoke Drive, in the Town of Union, early Saturday morning.
Broome Sheriff's investigators say speed played a role.
Diaferio was with two friends, also graduates of Union Endicott High School.
Both men were also injured.
Calling hours for Diaferio are Tuesday from 4:00 to 7:00 pm at Allen Memorial Home in Endicott.
The funeral mass is at 10:00 am Wednesday at St Anthony of Padua Church.
