Schenectady, N.Y. - A funeral is being held today for state Trooper Jeremy VanNostrand.
His service will be this morning at Saint John Gabriel the Archangel Roman Catholic Church in Schenectady.
VanNostrand was in his personal vehicle waiting to turn into the state police barracks in Montgomery County last week when he was rear-ended by a box truck. The impact sent his vehicle into traffic, where it was hit by a pickup truck.
The 36-year-old was rushed to the hospital but was later pronounced dead.
The cause of the crash is still under investigation.
