Rest Area Dedicated to Trooper Killed in Line of Duty



    A rest area on Interstate 91 Northbound in Middletown has been dedicated to a state trooper who was killed in the line of duty on Sept. 2, 2010.

    Trooper First Class Kenneth Hall, a 22-year-veteran of the State Police, enlisted in the United States Marine Corps after high school and served in Vietnam before becoming a state trooper.

    During Hall’s career with the state police, he served in Central District Traffic and Traffic Services Unit as well as the Connecticut State Police Training Academy. He also carried out specialized details, including Presidential details and other VIP protection assignments, according to his obituary.

    The ceremony to dedicate the rest area in Trooper Hall’s honor was held on Friday at 10 a.m.

    Hall was killed in a crash on Interstate 91 in Enfield on Sept. 2, 2010.

    Michael Pajak, of Enfield, is serving an 11-year prison sentence for causing the crash that killed Hall.
