NEW MILFORD, N.J. — Hundreds of people have turned out to mourn a New Jersey man who was among eight killed in a truck driver’s rampage on a New York City bike path.

The visitation for Darren Drake was held Saturday afternoon in New Milford. A funeral home spokesman says it was extended due to the large crowd, which included several elected officials from the region.

The New Milford man will be buried Monday morning.

The 32-year-old project manager for Moody’s Investors Service at the World Trade Center was out for a bike ride between meetings Tuesday when the truck hit and killed him.

His father, James Drake, says that he drove Darren every day to the train terminal in suburban Hoboken so he could commute to his job in the city.
