NCDOT To Dedicate Bridge In Honor Of Fallen State Trooper

(GDN) – North Carolina Transportation officials will dedicate the O’Berry Road bridge over U.S. 117 in honor of Trooper Nolan J. Sanders. Officials say Sanders died while on patrol when he was involved in a single-vehicle crash on March 27, 2020, on Interstate 795 outside Goldsboro. He was 28 and had been with the State Highway Patrol for five years. Sanders was a member of the Indian Springs Volunteer Fire Department and Mount Olive First Pentecostal Holiness Church where the ceremony will be held. Remarks will be made by members of the N.C. Highway Patrol, state Transportation Board member Melvin Mitchell and Wayne County Sheriff Larry Pierce. His family says they created the Trooper Nolan Sanders Foundation, which assists families of the State Highway Patrol who lose a loved one in the line of duty.
