HOWELL TOWNSHIP, NJ (MONMOUTH)–Earlier today, troopers from Troop “C” Hamilton Station along with members of the Howell Township Police Department visited Trooper Marc Castellano’s memorial site on I-195 in Howell Township to pay their respects.
On June 6, 2010, Trooper Castellano was struck by a passing motorist while walking along the shoulder of I-195 while searching for a reported armed occupant of an abandoned vehicle.
In 2018, Governor Phil Murphy renamed a portion of I-195 as “Marc K. Castellano Memorial Highway” to honor Trooper Castellano’s memory.
Today marks the 10-year anniversary of his tragic death. We will never forget his sacrifice.
