Legislation Introduced to Honor Fallen State Trooper

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara has introduced legislation to honor a fallen state trooper.

Trooper Jeremy VanNostrand died in a crash near the Route 5S Fonda State Police Barracks in the Town of Glen this past November.

Van Nostrand was reporting to work, and was turning into the barracks when his car was rear ended by a box truck, and then his car was pushed into oncoming traffic when it was hit by a pickup truck.

Santabarbara wants to designate part of that road as the “Trooper Jeremy J. VanNostrand Memorial Highway," the portion where the barracks are located and where VanNostrand served.
