PATERSON, NJ - A GoFundMe page has been established to help the family of Cristine Dilone cover the funeral expenses of the 17-year-old Paterson Charter School for Science and Technology student who was killed in a car accident on Friday.

“Cristine was a beautiful 17 year old girl with the biggest heart in the world,” the page said. “Her family and friends are heartbroken over such a profound and sudden loss.”

As previously reported, Cristine was the driver of a 2009 Mitsubishi Galant that collided with a 2009 Peterbuilt Rolloff Container truck at approximately 9:38 a.m.  The accident took place just south of the Valley Road exit.
