Trooper Salvatore Embarrato was killed when his patrol car crashed through a guard rail and plunged down an embankment as he turned around to stop a traffic violator.

His patrol car experienced a malfunction, causing it to go out of control and through the guard rail. Although Trooper Embarrato was wearing a seat belt, he was thrown from the vehicle because the seat belt anchors detached from the frame of the car.

Trooper Embarrato had served with the New York State Police for 3 years. He is survived by his parents and two sisters.

Dear Brother...Today marks the 56th Year Remembrance Day...of your loss to our family. It was on a Thursday...the 6th of July, 1961...around 1 pm...when that trooper knocked on our door...and gave us the devastating news...that forever changed all of our lives.

As a son, brother, nephew, and cousin...you made our family so very proud of you...even neighborhood friends...held you in high regard...as your life...was an example of all that is good...in a human being. I still have friends...who remember you as a role model...and they always speak of your keen wit...intelligence and character...as outstanding...so I’m not just a sister...recognizing how special you were.

One would think...after all these years...that the details would fade...and the emotions wan...but everything that took place that day...and in the immediate ones following...are still very vivid for me...since time has a way of standing still...and etches into your memory...everything that takes place...when a tragedy occurs...and it stays with you...as anyone who has lost...a young member of their family...to an unexpected and very heartbreaking circumstance...well knows and sadly understands.

So yesterday, as in past years...I ordered a memorial floral arrangement...from the Nyack florist...to be delivered on this date...another Thursday...to the NYS Troop T – Zone One Memorial...in memory of its members...who gave their lives in the line of duty. Your name is the first one inscribed...but unfortunately I know...it won’t be the last...and with that in mind...when I pray for you...I always include your fellow troopers.

May God bless you Sal...as you keep watch...over our families...as well as all those...who serve and protect.

Rest peacefully in His Light...my wonderful big brother... knowing that you are loved...very missed...held close in my heart...and prayed for always.

You remain the best of us...and You are not forgotten.
