Police Officers are sending a reminder to drivers after a tragedy in Buffalo, New York.
New York state trooper Kevin Rooper Dobson was on duty just after 7:20 am Saturday morning when he stopped a car on the Youngmann Expressway to write a traffic ticket.
He was struck by an oncoming vehicle.
The 43 year-old trooper died less than an hour later at a Buffalo hospital.
Investigators in Buffalo are still looking into the details of the event.
Here in Erie local law enforcement stresses the importance of the move over law.
The move over law went into effect in January.
