NH State Police: Trooper Was Driving 100+ MPH Before Tractor Trailer Crash

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The head of the New Hampshire State Police says a trooper who crashed his cruiser into a tractor-trailer in December was driving faster than 100 mph at the time of the accident.

State Police Director Robert Quinn said Friday that Trooper Gary Ingham was at fault when he lost control of his cruiser on Route 101 in Brentwood, crossed the median and crashed into an oncoming tractor-trailer the night of Dec. 2. An investigation revealed that Ingham had reached a speed of either 101 or 102 mph.

Ingham was taken by a medical helicopter to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, where he was treated and released the next day.

    And I bet this dirt bag still has his job! This poor excuse for an officer should be fired and have his drivers license permanently suspended.
    Another one who thinks he is above the law!

    Yup and what was his excuse? Did he have his siren on? Lights? A few years ago I was on a 1 lane rural highgway and a trooper tailgated me for a good few miles, i was going the exact speed limit. If I had to suddenly break or stop he would of creamed my car, then what would be his excuse? Oh if he hurt me or my passengers I would burn him in court, cop or no cop. I see them all the time flying on the highways, so unsafe.

    This cop should lose his job and his pension, stop paying bad cops to endanger people. He should also be charged with driving to endanger.
