    MA State Trooper Killed on Detail

    Two people were arrested and charged early Friday in connection with the death of a 28-year veteran Massachusetts state police trooper who was struck and killed overnight on Interstate 95 north.

    State police authorities said Sgt. Douglas Weddleton, 52, of Brockton, was outside his cruiser on I-95 north near exit 6 in Mansfield working a construction detail when he was hit just before 1:30 a.m.
    ...
    McGovern said Weddleton, who was assigned to the Foxborough State Police barracks, was using his cruiser to block an off ramp from Interstate 95 to Interstate 495 north while construction work was being performed when an Acura sedan tried to get around his vehicle to enter the blocked off ramp.

    Weddleton had stopped the Acura when a Ford-150 pickup truck hit the Acura from behind, causing the Acura to hit Weddleton and throw him across the highway, McGovern said.

    "The impact of the crash pushed the Acura into Sgt. Weddleton and then across all three travel lanes, where it came to rest on the left side of the highway, causing Sgt. Weddleton to suffer serious injuries," said McGovern

    Man. More of these all the time, no reason for it. If only the cruisers had a Jersey-barrier ram that could be extended out of the back to stand behind or something. RIP.

    RIP Sarge Many thoughts & prayers to family and friends.

    I don't care who you are or what you do, OUI is never okay. Far too many people think it's not that big of a deal or, "It won't happen to me." Watching that video infuriated me even more because I know how crappy the OUI laws are in MA. They do not have an implied consent law, so if that asshat only blew a 0.06 on the PAS and refused a blood test, we'll never know what else he had on board that likely added to his level of impairment. Another senseless death at the hands of someone who won't take responsibilty.
    The true measure of your character is what you choose to do when you think no one is looking.

    My prayers are going out for the Sarge and his family.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.

    As a member of my department's Honor Guard, we went to Sgt. Weddelton's Funeral yesterday. There were an estimated 5500 Officers and Troopers in Attendance. I was especially impressed by the large contingents sent by the New York, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New Jersey State Police.
