Posted by Connecticut Accident News | May 14, 2020 | 0 Comments

Meriden, CT (May 11, 2020) - Antonio Grandetti, a Wallingford resident, was killed in a single car accident the day after Mother's Day.

The crash occurred on Route 15 north near the Miller Avenue entrance ramp, between exit 67 and 66. He was the sole person in the vehicle. He struck a guardrail on the right side at around 8 in the morning. Police and investigators believe that he suffered some medical abnormality in the moments before the accident. He later passed away at Midstate Medical Center while being treated for his injuries. 

Antonio Grandetti is survived by his twin sons Grayson and Giovanni, his wife Amber, and many siblings of his own. He was a volunteer EMT for the North Branford Fire Department and was a security guard at the Yale Center for British Arts in New Haven. His obituary said that he was born in New Haven and dreamed of owning his own restaurant after attending culinary school straight out of high school. It also said that he had a big heart, was selfless, loved teaching his boys soccer, and was a parishioner at a Wallingford church. 

The North Branford Fire Department posted this on Facebook:

"It is with sorrow the North Branford Fire Department announces the that gravesite services for NBFD Company #4 Emergency Medical Responder Antonio Gandetti will be conducted on Friday morning at 10:00 OUTSIDE the All Saints Mausoleum, 700 Middletown Avenue, North Haven. Members of the Department and external organizations are requested to wear Class A or duty uniforms and arrive at the cemetery at 9:00 AM. Assistant Chief of Training Mark Amatrudo will coordinate cemetery assignments."

In a statement, North Branford Fire Chief William Seward said, “The heartfelt sympathy of the entire Department is extended to the family, relatives, and friends of the deceased in the midst of the great loss that they and the Department has sustained."

Our thoughts are with the victim and his family.
