New Hampshire Trooper Involved Accidents Increase 300%

 Monday, February 9, 2015


An urgent message was delivered Friday, not only state lawmakers, but also the N.H. State police. The police held a press conference Friday to discuss the high number of state police cruisers that have been hit by passing motorists.
The message is clear, if you see an emergency vehicle up ahead slow down and move over if possible. "It only takes a second to change your life or the life of someone else forever," Trooper Eric Shirley, a 15-year veteran of the State Police, said. 19 police cruisers have been hit this winter, an increase of 300 percent over previous years.
