State Trooper Struck by Tractor-Trailer on Interstate 86
A New York State Police trooper was hit by a tractor-trailer while working at a crash scene on Interstate 86.
Authorities say the incident happened around 9:05 a.m. Wednesday in the city of Corning.
According to state police, Trooper Jacob Wackowski was stationary, assisting with traffic control on I-86 eastbound.
Wackowski's troop vehicle was parked with its emergency lights activated when he was sideswiped by a passing truck.
Wackowski was treated at Corning Hospital for minor injuries.
Investigators say the tractor-trailer driver, 53-year-old Troy English of Buffalo, was issued a ticket for failure to obey the state's Move-Over Law. He also was cited for vehicle and traffic violations.
Police say warrants had been issued for English in North Carolina for identity theft and in Pennsylvania for violating a court order by not paying a fine.
English was arraigned in Corning city court and sent to Steuben County Jail on $500 bail.
