State Trooper Killed in Crash on Long Island (NYSP)
State Trooper Killed in Crash on Long Island
OAKVILLE, N.Y. (AP) -- An 18-year veteran of the New York State Police was killed Wednesday morning when his cruiser skidded into oncoming traffic and collided with an oncoming SUV on eastern Long Island, police said.
The trooper, Jose Rosado, 45, of Deer Park, was driving south on County Route 104, a half mile south of Sunrise Highway, at about 8:50 a.m.
He may have slid on "black ice'' when he collided with a northbound 2005 Chevy Suburban driven by Linda Ogeka, 47, of Quogue, said Major Walter Heesch, commander of Long Island-based Troop L.
Rosado, the father of two teenage children, was declared dead at the scene, while Ogeka was taken to Stony Brook University Hospital, where she was treated for a broken ankle, Heesch said.
Rosado, who was assigned to the Riverside Barracks on eastern Long Island, was "a spit-and-polish trooper,'' Heesch said. "He was always happy and dealt well with the public.''
Funeral arrangements were not immediately announced.

My condolence and prayers for his family and friends.
A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.
It enriches those who receive it,without making poorer those who give.It takes but a moment, but the memoryof it sometimes lasts forever.
None is so rich or mighty that hecan get along without it,and none is so poor but thathe can be made rich by it.
A smile creates happiness in the home,fosters goodwill in business,and is the countersign of friendship.
It brings rest to the weary,cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.
Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,or stolen, for it is something that is of novalue to anyone until it is given away.
Some people are too tired to give you a smile.Give them one of yours, as none needs a smileso much as he who has no more to give.

Rest in peace brother, my prayers are with you.
Saint Michael, heaven's glorious commissioner of police,
who once so neatly and successfully cleared God's premises
of all its undesirables, look with kindly and professional
eyes on your earthly force.
Give us cool heads, stout hearts, and uncanny flair for
investigation and wise judgement.
Make us the terror of burglars, the friend of children and
law-abiding citizens, kind to strangers, polite to bores,
strict with law-breakers and impervious to temptations.
You know, Saint Michael, from your own experiences
with the devil that the police officer's lot on earth is not
always a happy one; but your sense of duty that so
pleased God, your hard knocks that so surprised the
devil, and your angelic self-control give us inspiration.
And when we lay down our night sticks, enroll us in your
heavenly force, where we will be as proud to guard the
throne of God as we have been to guard the city of all
the people. Amen.
