Parsippany Man Crashes into Building, Killed in Route 287 Car Accident
Posted on Sep 07, 2013
A 32-year-old man will be laid to rest in a private ceremony after suffering a fatal Parsippany car crash on August 15, 2013.
Parsippany resident James Allan Palladino, who had previously attended the County College of Morris and had worked at Edgell Communications, was traveling southbound on Route 287 that morning. State Police said that Palladino’s vehicle suddenly left the roadway around 8:55 a.m. and crossed over a ramp, crashing into the woods near the Exit 40.
State Police Sgt. Adam Grossman said that Palladino’s vehicle may have driven over another ramp before finally crashing into the back of a building on Entin Road.
Palladino was pronounced dead shortly after the accident. It appears that Palladino was the only occupant of the vehicle, and other cars were involved in the crash.
Sgt. Grossman has said that the accident remains under investigation.
The state Department of Transportation closed the Route 287 south ramp for Exit 40 for County Road 511/Parsippany Rd. in order to clear the accident scene, but the ramp was reopened shortly before noon.
Palladino’s family and friends were welcomed to attend his viewing at Par-Troy Funeral Home at 95 Parsippany Road in Parsippany; however, the funeral was private. According to his obituary, those wishing to make donations in his memory are encouraged to donate to the Rockaway Neck 1st Aid Squad and the Epilepsy Foundation of New Jersey.
Our attorneys and staff wish to extend our deepest condolences to the victim’s family and friends as we keep him in our thoughts and prayers.
