BOSTON (CBS) – A bridge on the Mass Pike was officially named in honor of a fallen Massachusetts State Police trooper during a Friday ceremony.
Friday marks two years since trooper Thomas Clardy was killed during a traffic stop.
He had pulled over an SUV on the Mass Pike when police say another driver high on marijuana hit and killed him.
That driver, David Njuguna, is now facing charges.
Friday's memorial was held at the Charlton State Police barracks.
"That name of Trooper Tom Clardy will be remembered by all of us certainly. But hopefully by those who have the chance to be part of the community in which that bridge is located," Gov. Charlie Baker said at the ceremony.
