Anthony Milazzo, Jr.

Patrolman Anthony Milazzo was killed when his patrol car was forced off the road by another car.

Patrolman Milazzo was attempting to stop a speeding car on the westbound side of the Southern State Parkway, in Farmingdale, when his vehicle was side swiped by another car. Patrolman Milazzo's patrol car was forced over the median and into oncoming traffic, where he struck an eastbound car head-on.

The driver of the vehicle that had forced the patrol car over the median stopped and walked over to the accident scene. After seeing what had happened, he returned to his car and fled the scene.

Patrolman Milazzo had served Long Island State Parkway Police Department for 10 months. He was survived by his wife and two sons.

I am Anthony Milazzo’s granddaughter, Stephanie. I served as military police in the Air Force for 5 years and was medically retired. I’ve kept his emblem with me during my service. I believe law enforcement and doing the right thing runs in our families blood. I wish I could’ve known him. Rest easy, grandpa. Hope we are all making you proud.
