Thruway fatality

MONTGOMERY – State Police want to talk to a commercial motor vehicle driver who helped them move a disabled vehicle off Interstate 84 in the Town of Montgomery on May 23.

The driver of that vehicle, Luke Patterson, 41, of Tannersville, was shot and killed by a trooper when he would not comply with the several commands from an officer standing outside a troop car and then dove through a window in the car.

Investigators, Tuesday, said they would like to speak to that commercial driver and anyone else who may have been traveling on I-84 and who may have witnessed any portion of the incident which occurred just before 2 a.m.

Anyone with information is asked to call State Police at 845-344-5300.
