Johnny Palermo, whose credits included several episodes of Everybody Hates Chris, and the Nickelodeon series Just for Kicks, was killed in the early morning hours of June 8 in North Hollywood, CA along with his girlfriend Alessandra Giangrande. Her brother, a passenger in the vehicle, was seriously injured.
LAPD Detective Bill Bustos told RadarOnline.com exclusively that Giangrande was behind the wheel of the 2005 Toyota Scion, driving at a high rate of speed. “She lost control of the car and collided with parking meters, trees, a building and a lamp standard.”
Neither she or Palermo were wearing seat belts, the Officer confirmed. “Both were killed instantly.”
Palermo, 27, most recently appeared in CSI: Miami and Rules of Engagement. He’d just wrapped a small role in Pizza with Bullets, an inde film due to be released in October.
Autopsies were performed on Palermo and Giangrande. “The results are pending,” said Sgt. Bustos.
