(WIVB)–New York State Police say they are investigating a multi-vehicle crash on the 190 North that left a State Trooper with serious injuries.
The crash happened at 5:40 a.m. Saturday.
Officials tell us Trooper Randi Murphy-Motley, an 18-year veteran of the State Police, was parked on the shoulder, investigating an unrelated crash, at the time of the incident.
Police also say Murphy-Motley was waiting for a tow for a Budget rental truck when the Dodge Charger patrol car was hit from behind by a Chevy Tahoe. The collision pushed her car into the rental truck.
The Trooper was taken to a local hospital. She has since been released.
The driver of the Tahoe, who was identified as a 25-year-old Buffalo man, and his passenger, an 19-year-old woman, also from Buffalo, were taken to ECMC for minor injuries.
