Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Shot During Traffic Stop Moved From ICU

State Police welcome holiday well wishes for Cpl. Seth Kelly as he continues to recover.

Pennsylvania State Police say a trooper who was critically injured in a roadside confrontation has been moved out of the hospital's intensive care unit.

Capt. Richard D'Ambrosio said Wednesday that Cpl. Seth Kelly's condition has improved, but he's still facing a long road to recovery.

Officials say Kelly, a 13-year veteran, was helping another trooper arrest a man they suspected of driving under the influence of marijuana when a fight broke out Nov. 7. Kelly was shot in the neck, shoulder area and leg during the fight.

The suspect, 22-year-old Daniel Clary, was shot several times and hospitalized. He has since been released into police custody.

Clary is facing charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault.

State police encouraged anyone wanting to send holiday wishes to Kelly to do so at Cards for Corporal Kelly, c/o PA State Police, 654 Bangor Road, Nazareth, PA 18064.
