Two were injured, including a State Trooper, in an early morning collision involving an MSP cruiser

According to the State Police Association of Massachusetts, just after midnight on Wednesday, a cruiser was struck while working a paid detail assignment on Route 91 in Chicopee. As a result of the crash, the Trooper was transported with minor injuries. The operator was also transported with more serious injuries.

The operator was issued a citation for failure to move over for an emergency vehicle.

SPAM wanted to remind drivers to slow down and move over when you see emergency lights in the breakdown lane or a construction site.

“This is happening far more often and is unacceptable. The Association will be seeking new laws in the upcoming legislative session to strengthen the “move over law” penalty. We’re thankful the Trooper wasn’t seriously injured. This needs to stop!”
