Sign dedicated to Trooper Amanda Anna, killed in Hastings crash

Sign dedicated to Trooper Amanda Anna

A sign was dedicated for Trooper Amanda Anna, who died in the line of duty last may after her SUV rolled over while trying to stop a traffic violator last May. Trooper Anna, 31, was from Liverpool and assigned to the Hastings barracks.

The sign is posted on Route 37, between Route 11 and Caughdenoy Road, in Hastings where she was killed.

The sign was dedicated by the Badge of Honor Association and the New York State Police on Monday.

"We remember our fallen troopers throughout the year and we honor their memories. This sign bearing her name, in the community where she served, will remind all of Trooper Amanda Annaâ??s sacrifice. It is a fitting honor for her and it is indeed a great tribute to her memory," said Superintendent Joseph A. Dâ??Amico.

Trooper Anna was killed on May 25, 2012, on County Route 37 in the town of Hastings when she lost control of the patrol vehicle on a curve, striking a guide rail and becoming airborne over a small inlet of water causing the car to overturn several times.

Trooper Anna was a six year veteran of the New York State Police, and was assigned to the Hastings Barracks in Oswego County. She is survived by her mother, step-father, a 5-year-old son and a fiancé.
