Memorial planned for Kentucky troopers who died last year

Kentucky State Police plan to dedicate a memorial to two troopers who died last year in the line of duty.
A police statement says a monument will be unveiled and dedicated on Monday afternoon at Post 1 in Hickory. It will recognize troopers Joseph Cameron Ponder and Eric Keith Chrisman. Both were stationed at the western Kentucky post near Mayfield and had graduated from the police academy in January 2015.
Chrisman, who was 23, died in June in a collision with a tractor-trailer near Grand Rivers while responding to a reckless driving complaint.
Ponder, who was 31, was fatally shot in September after stopping a driver with a suspended license.
