BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) - Hundreds of mourners gathered at a Bayonne church for the funerals of a teacher and his young daughter who were killed this week in a crash on the New Jersey Turnpike’s Hudson County Extension.

The service for Tim and Bridget O’Donnell was held Saturday morning at the Parish of St. John Paul II.

The two died Monday afternoon when their car was rear-ended on the highway in Jersey City.

Authorities have said O’Donnell was slowing down with westbound traffic near a toll plaza. His car went through the tolls and into the eastbound lane, where another vehicle hit it.

O’Donnell was a science teacher at County Prep High School and previously coached softball at the Jersey City school as well as Hudson Catholic.
