Hundreds pay respects to fallen trooper

Hundreds of mourners paid their respects to Kentucky State Trooper Eric Chrisman during visitation at Ninevah Christian Church Sunday afternoon.

Chrisman, who had just graduated from the Kentucky State Police Academy in January, died Tuesday when his cruiser collided with a tractor-trailer in Livingston County in western Kentucky. Chrisman was answering a call about a reckless driver when the accident occurred.

Chrisman, 23, was an Anderson County native and graduated from Christian Academy of Lawrenceburg in 2009.
