New York State Trooper Joseph Gallagher was helping a stranded motorist on December 18th – when he was struck by a car on an overpass from the Long Island Expressway. The 35-year old, West Seneca Native was critically injured and remains hospitalized.
Family and friends want everyone to know that they believe in the power of prayer and they’re making a request.
Trish Casillo says the family hopes everyone can come together for a brief moment and help her nephew, “It will be 3 weeks to the day that my nephew Joe was hit while on duty helping a disabled driver. All have offered prayers but I believe that there is such power in prayer and even more power in a huge surge of prayer all at the same time!”
The family hopes you will stop what you’re doing at 2:30 Monday afternoon – the exact time of the accident – and invoke Joe Gallagher’s name in prayer. They are hoping for a true miracle.
Although Trooper Gallagher has shown small improvements, he remains unconscious.
The family would also like to thank all of the caring troopers who have helped the family in any and every way possible.
Trooper Gallagher was born in South Buffalo and went to Bishop Timon High School.
He lives downstate and has a wife and two young children.
We are sending prayers to Trooper Gallagher and his family.
