NEW JERSEY STATE TROOPER KILLED AT FIRE SCENE

     

Tuesday, March 8, 2016 Tragic news from NJ this morning as a New Jersey State Police trooper has died in the Line of Duty after being struck by a vehicle on Interstate 295 in Deptford. While not a fire/EMS service specific loss, an equally grim reminder of the risks we all share when working on roadways. 

NJ State Police Trooper Sean Cullen, 31, was pronounced dead about 0030 hours this morning at Cooper University Hospital in Camden.
Trooper Cullen had responded to a crash with fire on milepost 23.4 of southbound I-295. He was walking near the scene, which included a car fire and a response by several other emergency vehicles with flashing lights, when a vehicle struck him, state police said. The 22-year-old woman who was driving the vehicle stopped immediately and cooperated with investigators.

Trooper Cullen was rushed by helicopter to Cooper, where family and many fellow trooper and other law enforcement personnel held vigil late into the night but at 0030 ours this morning, he passed.

Our condolences to all those affected by this loss. RIP.
