Prosecutors allege that Njuguna was driving 80 mph and high on marijuana on March 16, 2016, when his car slammed into Clardy’s stopped cruiser from behind on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Charlton. The 44-year-old trooper was a father of seven.

The defense claims Njuguna crashed because he had a seizure.

“I’m going to tell you it was an accident,” said David Njuguna, 33, of Webster. “I’m very sorry, even with all the testimony that’s been here.”
