State Trooper killed in crash
HASTINGS, N.Y. -- A New York State Trooper is dead after a patrol car crash just north of Syracuse. It happened on County Route 37 in the town of Hastings in Oswego County around 11:30 p.m. Friday.
State Police said Amanda Anna, 31, of Liverpool was driving a marked Chevrolet Tahoe when she lost control on a curve. The SUV hit a guide rail and went airborne, overturning several times.
Trooper Anna was taken to Upstate University Hospital, where she died from her injuries early this morning.
State police say the cause of the crash is still under investigation.
Trooper Anna was a 6-year veteran of the New York State Police. She is survived by her mother, step-father, a four-year-old son and a fiancé.
The Governor writes in part "For the six years that Trooper Anna served as a member of the State Police, she put protecting the people of the State of New York before all else. New York is a safer state as a result of Trooper Anna's commitment and dedication, and we mourn her untimely passing."
