Indiana State Trooper killed on I-74 while assisting a disabled motorist

An Indiana State Trooper was pulled over on the shoulder of I-74, assisting a disabled motorist. While exiting his vehicle to bring gas to the driver, an oncoming semi-tractor trailer slammed into his police vehicle, as well as the disabled vehicle. The Trooper died at the scene.

Tabor Law Firm represented the Trooper's wife, and young child in a wrongful death action, and recovered a settlement from the Defendants. Following this tragic accident, the widow and Roy Tabor of Tabor Law Firm established a scholarship fund awarding college scholarships to graduating high school seniors of Indiana State Police Officer's children.
