An off-duty New Jersey state police trooper has been killed in a crash in Pennsylvania.
Authorities say 30-year-old Brian McNally, of Bedminster, was alone in a vehicle that was eastbound on Interstate 78 in Greenwich, Berks County when the crash occurred around 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
As he approached slowing traffic near a construction zone, authorities say McNally moved from the left lane into the right before rear-ending a tractor-trailer. His vehicle and the rear of the trailer caught fire, and McNally was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
