MILAN, Ohio (AP) - A state trooper who was badly hurt in a pileup that killed three people on the Ohio Turnpike last winter says he’s almost ready to get back on patrol.

State Highway Patrol Trooper Andrew Clouser has been through 10 months of recovery and rehabilitation since the massive pileup last March.

Dozens of vehicles were involved in the series of chain-reaction crashes on the turnpike near Sandusky.

A tractor-trailer crashed into the some of those vehicles, pinning the trooper between two cars.

He suffered broken ribs, a broken leg and fractures in his lower back.

Clouser tells The Blade (https://bit.ly/1CHzkYm ) newspaper in Toledo that he could be back on patrol in late February, but he says he really wants to be working by March 12, the one-year anniversary of the crash.
