SOUTH GLENS FALLS, N.Y. (AP) - Calling hours and funeral services are set for a New York state trooper who died this week after being struck by a car while on duty.

Trooper Timothy Pratt had just started his shift early Wednesday morning when he stopped to assist a tractor-trailer driver who had stopped in the median of the road in front of the trooper station in Wilton where Pratt worked. State police officials say Pratt stepped into the path of a passing car after talking to the truck driver.

The 55-year-old Pratt worked as a road patrol trooper for most of a career that began in 1987.

Calling hours are Sunday afternoon at the high school in South Glens Falls, his hometown. His funeral is Monday morning at a South Glens Falls church. Pratt will be buried at Saratoga National Cemetery.
