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 20-year-old female driver was killed. Her 21-year-old female companion was critically injured.

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.
