NJ.com reports New Jersey State Trooper Frankie Williams will be laid to rest Dec. 12, 2016 following a funeral service at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall.

The rookie trooper died on Dec. 5, 2016 from injuries sustained in an on-duty crash on Highway 55 in Millville.

Authorities say Williams was responding to a report of an erratic driver, when a man traveling the other way crossed the grassy median and hit his marked troop car head-on, tangling the two cars in a wreck that took both their lives.

The 31-year old trooper was hailed as a “leader and a role model” who had just graduated the academy in January.

A private viewing will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. for friends and family, followed by a separate viewing for law enforcement from 10 until noon, according to a notice posted by the Adams-Perfect funeral home in Northfield.
