Trooper charged with reckless driving after WNY crash on I-90 over the summer

A New York State Trooper has been charged with reckless endangerment following a car crash over the summer along I-90 in Western New York.

The crash happened between exits 58 and 59 when Trooper Stephen Barker was responding to a crash.



Investigators say Baker struck the back of a vehicle that he didn’t notice was slowing down for traffic.

All five people were treated at area hospitals for injuries.

Troopers say Baker is currently suspended without pay.
