State Police Trooper David Roman said at about 4:30 a.m. the Suzuki veered onto the right shoulder and hit the trailer of the truck. According to early reports, it did not appear the truck was disabled and the driver might have been sleeping.

Fire crews extricated Castaldo and a passenger who was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Roman said. The truck driver was not injured.

An autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.
