North Carolina: Highway Patrol Trooper Seriously Injured in Traffic Stop Crash

Friday, October 25, 2019

North Carolina Highway Patrol says a trooper is in serious condition after being hit by a driver who's now charged with driving while intoxicated.

The Highway Patrol said in a news release that the trooper had pulled a driver over in Vance County Tuesday night. He was standing by his vehicle when he was struck by another vehicle that had left the roadway.

WRAL-TV reports that the first driver who had been pulled over called 911. The injured trooper was then flown by helicopter to a hospital.

The agency said Wednesday morning that Trooper Craig I. Hundley, a 12-year veteran, was in serious condition.

The Patrol said the driver of the car that hit the trooper has been charged with driving while intoxicated and felony hit-and-run among other charges.
