Former State Trooper Killed in Crash

A Longville former state trooper was killed Friday while not wearing a seatbelt after he lost control of his truck.
Timothy J. Murphy, 52, was killed around 8 p.m. on Hwy. 84 near Longville after he lost control of his truck and hit a tree while not wearing his seatbelt, the Star Tribune said.
Murphy retired from being a state trooper in 2008 and spent 26 years with the patrol. He also worked as an accident reconstructionist for a time, the Brainerd Dispatch said.
State Patrol Lt. Erik Roeske said this accident demonstrated that everyone faces the possibility of death as a result of not wearing a seatbelt, the Brainerd Dispatch said.
