A road was named in honor of a New York State Police sergeant killed last year in a crash.

A dedication ceremony was held at Maple Avenue Extension in the town of Amsterdam. That road is now the Sergeant Jeremy VanNostrand Memorial Drive.


VanNostrand was killed in a crash last November. He was on his way to work at the state police barracks in the town of Glen, when his car was rear-ended by a box truck.

Trooper VanNostrand started his career in public service to the state in 2004, when he was employed by the Department of Corrections.

He was a state trooper for six years.
