Officer Calabrese responded to a car accident that I was involved in on Rt 73 in 1992. I was a a young, nursing student, and I was terrified. My car was totaled. Officer Calabrese was so kind to me. I didn’t want to go to the hospital, and lived less than a mile away. He drove me home and came into the house with me and spoke to my mother. When my case came to court he testified that that intersection should have a traffic light. I’ll never forget his kindness or willingness to go above and beyond. I was heart broken when I heard he’d been killed and left a young family.
