Trooper Struck by Car Remains in Critical Condition


(WBTV) – A North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper remains in “very critical condition” at a hospital two days after he was struck by a car while investigating a fatal wreck on I-485.

Trooper Adolfo Lopez-Alcedo was near the scene where five people were killed in a wreck the night before when a car struck him Saturday morning on the outer loop of Interstate 485 at West W.T. Harris Boulevard.

According to a GoFundMe created for Lopez-Alcedo family, Lopez-Alcedo has a long fight ahead of him to recovery.

“He has suffered significant injuries to his body and brain, the extent of which have not been fully diagnosed, the GoFundMe said. “His recovery will take months or even years, will require countless medical appointments and unknown expenses for this amazing family.” CONTINUE
