2 officers remain hospitalized after fatal wrong-way crash

(AP) - Two New Jersey police officers remained hospitalized in critical but stable condition days after they were injured in a wrong-way crash in New York City that killed another officer and a friend.



Linden police Capt. James Sarnicki on Monday says there is nothing new to report on the medical conditions of Officers Pedro Abad and Patrik Kudlac.



Another Linden officer, 28-year-old Frank Viggiano, and the officers' friend, 28-year-old Joe Rodriguez, were killed in Friday's crash.



Authorities said the four men were headed home from a strip club when their car drove the wrong way down the highway and crashed head-on into a tractor-trailer. The officers were off-duty.



The truck driver suffered injuries that are not considered life-threatening.



Viggiano's viewing is scheduled for Wednesday with his funeral on Thursday in Linden.
