CAREY, Ohio - The Ohio Highway Patrol says a trooper killed in a crash while on duty was driving too fast when his cruiser went off a road and rolled several times.

Investigators say the trooper, who had just graduated from the highway patrol academy in December, was going 116 mph before the accident in early February.

Trooper Andrew Baldridge, 25, died in the crash just outside Carey, which is about 65 miles south of Toledo. A training officer who was riding with him was hurt.

He was responding to a backup request from a sheriff's deputy who was searching through a home where vagrants were suspected to be living.
