Hit and Run Suspect Sought after Hitting Off Duty Trooper
An off-duty state trooper ended up in the intensive care unit at the hospital after being hit by a car Monday. A West Virginia state trooper is showing signs of improvement after being hit by a car in St. Albans, and the woman who hit him has yet to be found. The off duty trooper was trying to apprehend a suspected shoplifter in the parking lot near the Goody's at the St. Albans Mall, and investigators say 34-year old Jennifer Garretson hit the officer and then left the scene. She would have faced a citation for shoplifting, but now she's now facing much more serious charges.
