A Pennsylvania State Trooper is being investigated for his alleged role in a deadly car crash last Friday night on the Pennsylvania Turnpike outside of Philadelphia.
Authorities say Trooper Searfoss has been placed on desk duty pending the outcome of the investigation.
"As I got closer there was a lot of debris on the road and it was a large fire," Shavin Duffy of West Chester, Pa. said. "I couldn't see, obviously, into the car, I was hoping the person had
gotten out cause I did see someone standing in the left lane near the car, but I couldn't tell if someone was in the car," Duffy said. Authorities say 21-year-old Robin Williams of the Logan section was killed after Barry Searfoss, an off-duty state trooper, rear-ended her 1997 Lincoln Town car with his 2003 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck.
He was taken into custody for suspicion of driving under the influence.
While authorities say the off-duty trooper has not been charged pending results of blood tests, Williams' relatives wanted to warn people in general about drinking and driving. "People please take driving and drinking very seriously," McNeil said. "Please, please I beg you. I lost my baby, I loved her and she loved her family," Thomas said.
The Montgomery County D.A.'s office is assisting in the investigation.
