Salvatore J. Embarrato

Trooper Salvatore Embarrato was killed when his patrol car crashed through a guard rail and plunged down an embankment as he pursued a traffic violator on the New York State Thruway in Tarrytown, one mile east of the Tappan Zee Bridge toll plaza.

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 was a U.S. Army veteran and had served with the New York State Police for three years. He is survived by his parents and two sisters.

Dear Sal...Yesterday was the Feast of the Epiphany...which ends the 12 days of Christmas...so I just got through taking down my Christmas decorations today.

As I pray you will have another very blessed new year...in the company of our parents...and my son...I want you to know...that you were...and still remain the very best of us.

I miss you my big brother...and I think of you each day. You are not forgotten.

May God bless you Sal...as you keep watch over our family.

You are in my prayers...always.
