Trooper Matthew Bond died when his cruiser was struck from behind while he was assisting a disabled motorist

Trooper Bond and another trooper were assisting the motorist on I-90 near Erie, Pennsylvania when a tractor trailer ran into the cruiser. The second trooper was not seriously injured. Trooper Bond was in the passenger seat of the cruiser, and the second trooper was in the driver's seat.

In August 1999, Trooper Bond won the agency's Medal of Honor for rescuing two people from a burning house.

In June 2001, Exit 10 on I-90, was renamed to the Trooper Matthew R. Bond Memorial Interchange in his honor.

Trooper Bond had served with the Pennsylvania State Police for four years and four months, and is survived by his wife, parents, sister, and stepbrother.

It has been over 16 years since we last played hockey together. I am still playing and think of you when I ice the puck or nearly go off side. I never did get a chance thank you for teaching me some of the basics of the game. I still say an occasional prayer for Shelly and your family.
