The driver a 17-year-old Parsippany resident was behind the wheel of a 2013 Toyota Corolla, endeavoring to execute a left turn onto Route 202. However, her path intersected with that of a 2012 Honda Civic, operated by Ms. Dianne Sirignano, 81, resulting in a collision.

Officer Caccavale’s investigation revealed the teenage driver was traveling west on Brooklawn Drive. Ms. Sirignano was at the stop sign on Glencove Road and Brooklawn Drive when she attempted to make a left turn to travel East on Brooklawn Drive. The front bumper of Ms. Sirignano struck the rear passenger side of the Toyota Corolla. As a result of the impact, the Toyota Corolla spun 180 degrees and left the roadway to the left side. The Toyota Corolla then struck the curb which resulted in the rear tires being suspended off the ground. The Toyota Corolla then struck a utility pole approximately one foot above ground level. The result of this impact caused the vehicle to overturn onto its roof. After impact, Ms. Sirignano continued forward and left the roadway to the left side. Ms. Sirignano then ran over the curb with the front two tires. Ms. Sirignano remained partially off the roadway until the Officer’s arrival.

Ms. Sirignano’s vehicle sustained front-end damage to the front bumper as a result of the impact and damage to the wheels, tires, and undercarriage as a result of the curb impact. The vehicle also had front airbag deployment. 

The Toyota Corolla vehicle sustained damage to the rear passenger side from the impact with Ms. Sirignano’s vehicle. The Toyota Corolla additionally sustained major damage to the roof as a result of being overturned.
