Accident Investigated Involving State Trooper

Shonda Skinner’s family would have been celebrating her 31st birthday on Monday, but instead were mourning her death. Shonda Skinner was killed and her young son injured Sunday night in a two-car accident that involved a State Police vehicle. Trooper Eric Kristansen, 26, was responding to assist a nearby sheriff’s deputy when the accident occurred. Kristansen was traveling west on Route 104, with his lights and sirens activated, when Skinner, also westbound, initiated a left turn near Fifth Road, troopers said. Kristansen attempted to evade Skinner's vehicle, but was unable to avoid striking the car.
