A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper is hospitalized after he was injured during a routine traffic stop on the Kansas Turnpike in east Wichita.

The patrol says the trooper had pulled over a semi-trailer truck for a routine inspection Tuesday evening when his vehicle was hit from behind by a pickup truck.

The trooper was taken to Wesley Medical Center in serious condition. The driver of the pickup truck suffered minor injuries.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.

I pray for the trooper and his family. I received a random truck inspection 2 weeks ago on the toll road. The Trooper informed me they have to do so many truck inspections a year. I just wish they would find a safer location to do random truck inspections. The K-tag lane at the toll booth where I received mine did not seem so safe. Again I pray the Trooper will have a speedy and full recovery!
