Funeral services were held Monday for State Trooper Jeremy VanNostrand, who died last week in a crash just outside the barracks he worked at in Montgomery County.
During his funeral remarks, Superintendent George Beach said he would be posthumously promoting Trooper VanNostrand to the rank of Sergeant.
The deadly crash that killed the 36-year-old trooper occurred last Tuesday after a box truck rear-ended his vehicle. The impact pushed his vehicle into the path of another truck. VanNostrand leaves behind a wife and 6-year-old daughter.
