It is with great sadness that the Massachusetts State Police announce the line-of-duty death of Trooper Thomas W. Devlin, 58, who passed away today (9-3-2020) from injuries he suffered when he was struck by a motorist two years ago.
On the afternoon of July 26, 2018, Trooper Devlin, while on patrol out of the State Police-Concord Barracks, conducted a motor vehicle stop on Route 3 in Billerica. While he was outside of his cruiser, he was struck by another motorist and suffered severe injuries. The driver of the vehicle that struck him, a Haverhill man, was charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle, marked lanes violation, and failure to move over for an emergency vehicle.
Trooper Devlin underwent many surgeries and on September 3, 2020, after a courageous battle, he succumbed to those injuries.
