    FROM: THE BOSTON GLOBE

    Massachusetts Trooper Ellen E. Engelhardt, who was left in a permanent vegetative state after being struck by a drunk driver in 2003, has died, State Police said today.

    "It is with profound sadness that we mourn the loss of Trooper Ellen Engelhardt, who was not just a valued colleague but also a dear friend who dedicated her career to protecting the citizens of our state. Since suffering the tragic injuries inflicted upon her in the line of duty by a drunk driver, Trooper Engelhardt has been an inspiration to every member of this Department for the courage, grace and dignity with which she lived," Colonel Marian J. McGovern, the superintendent of the State Police, said in a statement.

    Engelhardt was injured when a car traveling at nearly 100 miles per hour slammed into her cruiser, which was parked in the breakdown lane of Route 25 in Wareham.

    The drunk driver, William P. Senne, who was 18 at the time of the crash, was sentenced in 2005 to 2 1/2 years in the Plymouth County House of Correction. (SENNE ONLY SERVED 12 MOS. OF THIS SENTENCE AND NOW HE IS A REAL ESTATE AGENT IN BOSTON. ABSOUTELY DISGUSTING.)


    State Police said Engelhardt suffered "traumatic and life-altering injuries" in the crash on July 26, 2003. Her death is considered a "line-of-duty" death, and she is the 32nd member of the force to be killed in the line of duty since the agency's founding.

            Sad in a few ways. The driver really killed her when he hit her and should have served more time. The family kept her alive for their personal reasons and that is their right but if I am in that like that my family knows I don't want to be kept alive.

            I wonder how the driver that killed her feels today? His life is going on like nothing happened.
