Manniello, Louis Joseph Jr. - PFC
Marine Dies In Camillus Hill Crash
A 21 year old Marine was injured fatally about 4 a.m. yesterday when the car he was driving collided head-on with a truck on Route 5 at Camillus Hill.
Pfc. Louis Joseph Manniello, Jr., son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis J. Manniello of 310 Cherry Rd. Westvale, died of a crushed chest.
Injured in the accident were the truck driver, Wilson F. Makley, 43, of 308 Slocum Ave., his wife, Beatrice, 33, and two children, Glen Francis, 7, and Mary Anne, 4.
Makley told sheriff's deputies he was driving east up the hill when he noticed the Manniello car skidding toward him. He said he tried to pull the truck over on the shoulder but the Marine hit him head-on. Manniello's car skidded about 300 feet, deputies said.
Makley suffered abrasions of the back but was not hospitalized.
Mrs. Makley suffered injuries to both legs, the boy received an injury to his right hand, and the girl suffered facial abrasions and an injured left leg. All were reported in good condition today at Memorial Hospital.
Driving a truck owned by Irwin H. Blumer of 1829 Bellevue Ave., Makley was returning from delivering copies of a morning newspaper.
Maniello was born in Syracuse May 31, 1936. He was a graduate of Cherry Road School, Solvay High School and attended Syracuse University.
He was employed at General Electric prior to entering the Marines.
Manniello took his basic training at Parris Island, S. C., and had been stationed in Memphis, Tenn. He came home on leave Friday.
The young Marine was a member of Robinson Memorial-United Presbyterian Church.
Surviving besides his parents are two sisters, Jane of New York City and Judy Manniello of Ithaca; his paternal grandmother, Mrs. Maria Manniello, Union City, N. J., and his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Harry Beech of Syracuse.
Services will be held Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the John C. Tindall Funeral Home followed by burial in Woodlawn Cemetery. The Rev. James B. McGraffin, Robeinson Memorial Church pastor and chaplain of the Marine Reserved Tank Battalion, will officiate.
Friends may call from 7 to 9 p.m. today and 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. tomorrow.
