This marks the second pedestrian fatality in Parsippany this year. In April, a 73-year-old woman was struck while attempting to cross Route 46 West at North Beverwyck Road. Additionally, a 36-year-old Dover woman died in a one-car crash on May 6 along Hanover Avenue.

No charges have been announced in connection with Calcagno’s death, and the investigation into the crash continues. The driver of the SUV remained at the scene, officials said.

Parsippany-Troy Hills Police and the Morris County Sheriff’s Office will lead the investigation, with assistance from the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.

According to his obituary with Van Tassel Funeral Home, Calcagno is survived by his sister Jean, brother Joseph, and many cousins. He was a graduate of Essex County Vocational School.
