Authorities have identified an off-duty Port Authority Police officer killed in a single-car crash on the New Jersey Turnpike today.
Police responded to the southbound truck lanes shortly before 3:30 a.m. for a report of a crash.
Upon arrival, police found a Subaru - driven by Eamonn Mautone - had crashed into the left guard rail. Based on initial investigations, Mautone appears to have lost control of vehicle of his Subaru possibly caused by the rainy conditions.
Mautone was sworn into the department as part of one of the largest graduating Port Authority Academy classes.
According to the Port Authority Police, Mautone was assigned the World Trade Center command.
