  • NYS Trooper Down

    CATSKILL, N.Y. (AP) - State police say a 30-year-old trooper from the Catskill barracks died in a collision while he was on patrol in the Hudson Valley.

    Police say Trooper David Lane, a four-year veteran, was driving north in his patrol vehicle on state Route 32 in Catskill at 2:25 p.m. Wednesday when he attempted to pass another northbound vehicle. The vehicles made contact and Lane's vehicle went off the road and hit a utility pole.

    Route 32 was shut down in both directions to allow for emergency response and investigation.

    The Watertown Daily Times reports that Lane was the son of Cheryl and Stephen Lane of Dexter in northern New York, and that he served in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Army's C Company, 307th Engineer Battalion, 82nd Airborne Division.

    RIP David Lane.

    Thoughts and prayers to Trooper Lane's family and friends.
    This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.
