Enfield, Conn. (WTNH) – A Connecticut state trooper killed in the line of duty is being remembered today as a role model and a well-respected member of law enforcement.

Trooper Kenneth Hall, 57, was killed Wednesday afternoon on I-91 in Enfield while issuing a motor vehicle citation.

State police say Hall had pulled over a pickup truck and was in his cruiser in the right shoulder when a third vehicle, traveling at a high rate of speed in the left lane, moved across all lanes of traffic into the shoulder and struck the police cruiser before rolling over in the left lane.

The driver in the pickup truck was not hurt. The driver and passenger in the other vehicle were seriously injured.

Hall, a 22-year veteran of the Connecticut State Police, is also a veteran of the Marine Corps.

"TFC Hall was well-respected in law enforcement and served as a role model for all State Troopers. He was highly trained and proficient in Commercial and Truck Enforcement on Connecticut highways," a statement from state police reads.

Gov. Jodi Rell has ordered flags to be lowered to half staff until Trooper Hall’s interment.

“My deepest condolences – along with those of every citizen of Connecticut – go out to the family of Trooper Hall and to all the members of the Connecticut State Police, who consider themselves to be one family,” Governor Rell said. “This is a tragic loss for our state – and it is a heartbreaking reminder of the dangers our state police officers face each day. I ask the people of Connecticut to keep Trooper Hall and his family in their prayers.”

A memorial Facebook page has been established for Hall. Funeral services have not been announced.

The accident is still under investigation. No charges have been filed. A law that became effective October 1, 2009 says that motorists are required to slow down and move over for emergency vehicles.
