    From what I heard the trooper was treated and released. If there had been major injuries you can bet it would have made the local news. And no I'm not telling how I got my info. Isla knows I have connections.

    edit: "state" as in staters
    Well, that's not surprising. They're out on the highways with traffic flying by doing 70+ mph. I don't exactly envy their job.

    I have a huge amount of respect for them, and have had some great conversations with a couple, but I wouldn't want to be in their position every night.

    Yeah, good point. I hadn't thought of that, but I guess Harborview would NOT be a good sign, would it?

    Perhaps he was out of the car at the time...or he was able to exit the vehicle without being engulfed...

    I'd like to hear a follow-up story...or maybe we have a WA Trooper on here that could shed some light?

    This time it strikes the Washington State Patrol. No word on how the officer is doing...

    It says he was taken to a nearby hospital to be "checked out" so hopefully that's a good thing. Doesn't sound like they LifeFlighted him or anything...

    Yeah, technically, thats true but the Crown Vic and Grand Marquis are virtually identical in looks. The Town Car uses the same chassis as the CV and GM but its styling is different.
    They look the same from a distance.

    Low End: Ford CV
    Mid: Merc Grand Marquis
    High End: Lincoln Town Car

    Not positive...

    They're different makes, but essentially the same car. Ford owns all of them, one is just nicer than the other...same chassis.

    Aren't Lincoln Town Cars the same as Crown Vics only is luxury format? I know they're shaped similiar because I always get them mixed up for PCs on the highway.

    The Washington State Patrol says one of their troopers was rear-ended by a Lincoln Town Car while the trooper was stopped on the shoulder near NE 4th Street in Bellevue around 5 p.m. The impact of the crash caught the trooper car's trunk on fire.
