It happens all too often across the country — police officers are injured — and sometimes killed — by motorists who fail to move over when the police are stopped by the side of the road. It happened a few weeks ago when state Trooper Greg Sawicki assisted a disabled motorist near I-95’s Exit 22 in Fairfield.
Sawicki’s car —with activated lights — was hit from behind by another vehicle. Both the trooper and the people in the disabled car were taken to hospitals with injuries, according to media reports. Sawicki has since been released from the hospital.
