NY State Trooper Dies After Thruway Crash
New York State Police Superintendent Joseph A. D’Amico says Trooper David W. Cunniff died this afternoon in Albany Medical Center.
The 35-year-old trooper was in his patrol car with emergency lights activated when the tractor-trailer hit his car and the car Cuniff had stopped. The impact forced the trooper’s car off the road and partially ejected him from the vehicle.
Trooper Cuniff is survived by his wife and two sons, ages 6 and 4.
