Location: I-81 NY   USA   Thu. May. 29, 2014
Summary: Trooper Christopher Skinner was intentionally struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver on I-81 in Broome County.

He was conducting a traffic stop just north of Exit 6, between Chenango Bridge and Castle Creek, when he was struck.

The suspect, just prior, had been driving north on I-81 when he intentionally struck two cars, injuring one driver. He kept driving and, about 1 mile north of exit 6, he spotted Skinner conducting a traffic stop.

Police said Upton, 60, then cut across a lane of traffic, intentionally striking Skinner and sideswiping the car the trooper had pulled over. He continued driving up the interstate a short distance until stopping and running into the woods.

The suspect was apprehended approximately one hour later following a search of the area, and subsequently arrested for 1st degree murder.
