BEAVER COUNTY, Pa. - T-shirts honoring a Beaver County trooper killed in an accident last week go on sale Thursday, with the proceeds benefiting his wife and two young children.

Members of the Western Pennsylvania Police Benevolent Foundation are selling the shirts to honor Trooper Blake Coble.

Coble was killed when his patrol car was hit by a flatbed truck. Investigators said the truck's driver ran a stop sign at the intersection of Route 168 and Blackhawk Road in South Beaver Township.

Coble was laid to rest Tuesday.

Hundreds of officers from all over the country came to pay their respects. His family members said Coble was three months away from retirement when he was killed.

The shirts can purchased at troopercoble.com or by visiting the state police barracks in Beaver.
