A 15-year New York State Police officer was injured after a Hudson Valley man rammed into his cruiser on the New York State Thruway.
On Tuesday, shortly before 6:00 a.m., a marked State Police car was struck by a 2017 Freightliner box truck while it was parked on the southbound right shoulder of I-87, in the town of Greenburgh.
Trooper Carlos Desilva was inside his patrol car monitoring traffic between exits 7 (Ardsley) and 7A (Saw Mill River Pkwy) when a box truck driving southbound drifted off the roadway onto the right shoulder and struck the driver’s side of the Troop car, causing significant damage.
Trooper Desilva, a 15-year veteran assigned to SP Tarrytown, was transported to Westchester Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries. He was treated and has since been released.
Michael Geleski, 35, of Fishkill, was operating the Ace Endico food truck out of Wappingers Falls, police say.
He and his passenger were not injured, according to New York State Police.
As of this writing, no charges have been filed and the crash remains under investigation.
State Police are reminding drivers to slow down and move over when emergency and construction vehicles are working on the highway.
