NY State Trooper Killed in Oswego

HASTINGS, N.Y.  – The New York State Police are mourning the loss of a fellow trooper after an accident in Oswego County.

Police say Trooper Amanda Anna was operating a marked State Police 2009 Chevy Tahoe eastbound on County Route 37 in the Town of Hastings when she lost control of the vehicle on a curve and struck a guide rail. The vehicle became airborne over a small area of water causing the vehicle to overturn several times.

Trooper Anna was taken to the hospital by ambulance for severe head trauma. She succumbed to her injuries at 5:25 a.m. Saturday morning.

Trooper Anna was a six year veteran of the New York State Police. She is survived by her mother, step-father, 4-year-old son, and a fiancé.

New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo released the following statement about the loss of Trooper Anna:

“I send my condolences to the family and friends of State Trooper Amanda Anna who died early this morning as a result of injuries sustained from a tragic car accident last night while on duty in Oswego County. She was just 31 years old. For the six years that Trooper Anna served as a member of the State Police, she put protecting the people of the State of New York before all else. In addition to her family and friends, Trooper Anna leaves behind a fiancé – who also serves as a member of the State Police – and a four year old child. They are both in our thoughts and prayers. New York is a safer state as a result of Trooper Anna’s commitment and dedication, and we mourn her untimely passing.”
