Health of trooper injured in turnpike pile-up improves

      29-year-old Trooper Andrew Clouser has been on the job for a little over a year.

      Officials at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center listed Ohio State Highway Patrol Trooper Andrew Clouser in fair condition on Tuesday night.

      The news is an improvement for the 29-year-old who had been in critical condition since last Wednesday.

      On March 10, Clouser was seriously injured when he became pinned between two vehicles along the Ohio Turnpike.
