Post Date August 2, 2012 - A Teaneck NJ woman was killed following a crash on the Garden State Parkway. The accident is believed to have been caused by a road rage incident on July 3, 2012. The Victim was identified as Annetta Billingy. She was a passenger in a car owned by John Emili’, a 2004 Honda Pilot. According to authorities; Emili together with another driver, Thomas J. Vanderweit, had been aggressively tailgating each other on a stretch of the New Jersey Parkway going while traveling through Washington Township. The New
Jersey State Police believed that road rage due to the tailgating, excessive speed and the frequent line-switching resulted to a fatal turn after Emili lost complete control of his Honda. The Honda slammed into the guard rail and then collided with Vanderweit’s Chevy Trail Blazer. The collision forced both vehicles off the road. The road rage victim, Billingy, was sitting in the back of Emili’s car.
