(BEDFORD, IN) - When motorists encounter a State Trooper on the side of an interstate, US highway, or state highway with their patrol vehicle's emergency lights on, they are attempting to warn motorists of a crash or slide-off ahead.

Public Information Officer, Curt Durnill, says in an effort to reduce secondary crashes, troopers strategically space their patrol vehicles apart prior to the affected area to warn motorists to reduce speed and move to the adjacent lane of travel where the crash is located.

Lieutenant Paul Bucher, commander of the Bloomington District states, "nothing we do as Indiana State Police Troopers is more important than the preservation of life for those living in, or traveling through the State of Indiana. Please help us save lives".
