It’s been over a month since Cpl. Andy Pringle was hit by a drunk driver during a routine traffic stop. The community support for Cpl. Pringle has grown tremendously.
“He’s a great guy and he’s been my go to guy for years there, and a good friend. We miss him and wish him a very speedy recovery,”WV State Trooper Sgt. James Stout with the Harrisville Detachment said.
On Sunday, the Blue Knights and Clarksburg Elks held a charity dinner at the Village Sqaure Conference Center. More than 200 people attended the dinner to raise money for Cpl. Pringle’s hospital expenses.
Sgt. James Stout said that the accident has also prompted changes at the state level.
“The state has enacted some laws that will help us as far as getting traffic to move over and yield their speed a little bit when they see us on the highway,” Stout said.
