Funeral services held for NY trooper killed in crash

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) — Hundreds of law enforcement officers have joined the family of a New York state trooper killed in an on-duty crash in paying their final tribute to the fallen officer.

More than 1,000 troopers, deputies and police officers turned out Monday for Jeremy VanNostrand’s funeral services at a Catholic church in Schenectady, along with Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other New York dignitaries.

The 36-year-old trooper was killed when his vehicle was rear-ended by a box truck last Tuesday as he waited to make a turn into the trooper station in Montgomery County where he worked.

Nostrand, a six-year state police veteran, was a native of neighboring Fulton County. Hundreds of law enforcement officers, relatives and friends attended calling hours Sunday at his high school alma mater.

Nostrand lived in Schenectady County with his wife and their 6-year-old daughter.
