  • CRASH SCENE: Taffic backjup in aftermath.

Stuttgart Police Sgt. Seneca Thornton, 36, was hit by a vehicle while making a traffic stop on the southern edge of Humphrey on U.S. Highway 79. Thornton was working part-time for the city of Humphrey.

Thornton was walking toward a vehicle he'd stopped on Highway 79 when struck by a southbound vehicle, the State Police said. That car then crashed into a ditch. Both the driver and Thornton were hospitalized.

The State Police are investigating.
