Funeral for Linden police officer killed in wrong-way crash
A funeral has been held for an off-duty Linden policeman killed in a wrong-way crash in New York that also left a friend dead and two fellow officers seriously injured.
Services for 28-year-old Officer Frank Viggiano took place Thursday in Linden, where he worked. He'll be buried in Fairview.
Officials say he and 28-year-old Joseph Rodriguez died when the car they were riding in crashed head-on into a truck March 20 in Staten Island after a night at a strip club.
Driver Pedro Abad Jr. and passenger Patrik Kudlac remain hospitalized. Both are Linden police officers.
Abad previously had his driver's license suspended for driving under the influence.
