Trooper Paul Barry was killed when his northbound patrol car drifted into the breakdown lane of I-495, near Exit 15, and struck a parked dump truck in Wrentham. The truck was unoccupied at the time.

A citizen who was certified as an EMT traveling behind him immediately stopped and provided medical care to Trooper Barry. The citizen was able to restore a pulse until another trooper and medical crews arrived. Trooper Barry was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

Today is July 4, 2018,, I looked back and haven't wrote for a long time,, Even without writing doesn't mean I don't think about you,,, My emotions haven't changed about that morning to this day,,, You are still with me in heart and soul,, Your picture is still on the fridge,,, I still wish we had a chance to meet under better reasons,,, Just never forget that I still have you with me always,,,, We will have the chance to see each other again someday,,,,,,
