Accident: former Millburn Board of Education member and her husband and son were killed in a highway crash this weekend, according to a statement. Recent board member Danielle Prieto, 53, her husband Alfred, 57, and their son Antonio died in the crash. The school district did not say where it occurred.
They are survived by two additional sons Alec, 25, and Roberto, who is a senior at Millburn High School. They were not in the vehicle, a school official said. Prieto served on the school board from 2018 until 2021 after retiring from working in the financial industry for 27 years, according to her candidate’s statement published by TAPinto Millburn/Short Hills in 2018.
She did not run for re-election in November. “Danielle cared so much for students, teachers and the district in her service on the board and the many projects for which she advocated,” said Dr. Christine Burton, Superintendent of Millburn schools said in a statement.

Grief counselors will be available Monday at Millburn schools to support students and staff as they process this tragic loss, Burton said.
