    State Trooper Thomas Clardy killed in Mass Pike crash
    He leaves behind a wife and 6 children
    UPDATED 6:10 PM EDT Mar 16, 2016
    CHARLTON, Mass. —A Massachusetts State Police trooper was killed Wednesday in a serious crash on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Charlton.

    Video: State police announce death of Trooper Thomas Clardy

    Trooper Thomas Clardy, 44, was a Marine who joined the State Police in 2005. He was a married father of six children, ranging in ages between 4 and 17.

    "Today we pray for them," said Col. Richard McKeon. "The Massachusetts State Police are devastated for their loss."

    The crash that tragically ended his life occurred around noon on the westbound side of the highway near the Charlton Service Plaza.

    McKeon said that Clardy was on an "accident incident reduction shift" that is designed to prevent crashes. He had pulled over a driver in a Chevrolet Tahoe for a violation and was working in his cruiser when a Nissan swerved across several lanes and slammed into the cruiser.

    Witnesses said the Nissan Maxima was speeding, McKeon said.


    Clardy's vehicle was pushed off the highway and badly damaged. Rescuers took him by medical helicopter to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    McKeon said charges will be pursued against the driver of the Nissan, who was identified as 30-year-old David Njuguna, of Webster. Those charges will include negligent operation of a motor vehicle and failing to stay within marked lanes.

    Njuguna was flown to UMass Medical Center by helicopter for treatment of serious injuries.

    McKeon described Trooper Clardy as a hard-worker who was known for his professionalism and dedication.

    "All who knew him have, today, borne witness to his outstanding character," McKeon said.

    This has been the worst start of the year for law enforcement in quite a while. Way too many of us are being taken too young and too early.

    My condolences to my New England brothers and sisters and to the Mass State Police. May Trooper Clardy rest in peace. God Speed Trooper.
