Trooper Thomas Clardy honored on 2-year death anniversary

A ceremony was held Friday to honor a Massachusetts State Trooper who died in the line of duty two years ago.

MSP and state officials hosted a ceremony in Charlton to dedicate a memorial in honor of Trooper Thomas Clardy.

Clardy died after a car crashed into his cruiser while he was working a detail on the Pike.

He left behind a wife and six children.

The Massachusetts Turnpike bridge and a roadway have been named after Clardy.

Police say David Njiguna of Webster was high on medical marijuana when he slammed into Clardy's cruiser. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
