From the photo – it’s hard to believe anyone survived the crash. But, thankfully, they did.

Trooper James O’Callaghan tells Totally Buffalo that the injured Trooper is doing okay today. They are not releasing her name just yet, but we know she is a five year veteran of the NYSP stationed out of State Police Buffalo I-90/33 station.  According to O’Callaghan, she is holding her own. “She has a fractured sternum amongst many other bumps and bruises. She is in good spirits and recovering.”

Multiple tickets were issued from the collision.

We are sending prayers and well wishes to the Trooper and hoping for a full and speedy recovery.
