The funeral for a New Jersey state trooper killed in a car accident will be held Monday in Atlantic City.

The New Jersey attorney general's office says services for Trooper Frankie Williams will be held at noon at Boardwalk Hall.


The first two hours are for friends and family; the second two hours are for law enforcement. Williams' family requested the burial service remain private.

Republican Gov. Chris Christie and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno are expected to attend the services.

The 31-year-old Williams, of Egg Harbor Township, was responding to reports of an erratic driver in Millville on Monday night when a motorist crossed the median and struck Williams' vehicle head-on.


He died at a hospital. The driver who struck Williams, 61-year-old Lloyd Rudley, also was killed.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
