Hatfield, MA (July 6, 2018) – A trooper with the Massachusetts State Police is in the hospital Friday morning following an overnight crash on Interstate 91. The crash occurred sometime before 5:00 am. The trooper was driving a state police patrol car on 91 when his vehicle ran off the road and into some trees. The vehicle was so far into the tree line that it was partially obscured from the road.
An ambulance responded to the scene and the trooper was transported to Cooley Dickinson Hospital with serious injuries of an unknown nature. He is expected to recover from the injuries. I-91 was closed temporarily near exit 21 while police investigated the accident, but has since re-opened. This crash remains under further police investigation to determine a cause.
