“We continue to seek the tractor-trailer that struck the Lieutenant and his cruiser. It has a blue cab and white trailer. We believe the truck’s make is Freightliner, and may be from a model year from 1998-2001. The truck may have minor damage to its passenger side, and may have white paint transfer from the cruiser on it (the cruiser was a white unmarked vehicle).”
