DINGMAN TOWNSHIP -- Two people are locked up after a state trooper was hit while responding to a 12-vehicle, chain-reaction crash on Interstate 84 westbound in Pike County.

It happened Wednesday around 2:30 a.m. between the Milford and Lord's Valley/Dingman's Ferry exits.

The trooper was helping another driver when he was struck.

Investigators said a tractor-trailer driver lost control and the trailer hit one parked state police cruiser, then hit the trooper, and finally hit a second state police cruiser.

The trooper who was hit was taken to the hospital. He was treated and released.

Troopers said the driver of the tractor trailer told them he lost control on the icy roads. The trooper interviewing him smelled alcohol on his breath and took him into custody on suspicion of DUI.

The driver of the rig, Cecil Lipscomb Jr., 47, of Massachusetts, was charged with aggravated assault while DUI and possession of controlled substance. Lipscomb's passenger, Nicole Gyurasz, was charged with possession of a controlled substance.

Investigators said Lipscomb was under the influence of alcohol and a stimulant at the time of the crash.

According to court documents, Gyurasz admitted to investigators that she and Lipscomb had sniffed cocaine and drank alcohol during the drive.

Both were locked up in the Pike County jail on $300,000 bail each.

I’m sure my post will be removed, but if you don’t break the law cops don’t piss you off, took me a little while to learn but it is a fact

      You are literally too stupid to insult. People like you do nothing but attempt to divide and destroy this country every day.

      You’ll never believe this, but it is not a guy, or just a random person. The dumbest screen names however. They are fully copied from mainstream journals in the NY/NJ area from about 6 years ago when they’d run that “occult hand” gag in certain stories. Search “occult hand club” if you don’t believe me.

    I’m surprised our local LEO’s let you near them after supporting a terrorist group that chants, “What do we want? Dead cops? when do we want them? now!” and “Pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon!”. You literally condone the destruction of their oaths WNEP. Get the memo officers, these people put you at a high risk. And they love it if they can generate another story from your demise.
