A Kansas Highway Patrol trooper was seriously injured when his patrol car was rear-ended while stopped behind a semi on the shoulder of the Kansas Turnpike Tuesday night.

The trooper, 36-year-old Da’Von Brame, is “very lucky” to be alive, Lt. John Lehnherr said.

Brame had pulled over a semi for inspection on the shoulder of the northbound lanes of the turnpike near the Kellogg interchange, officials told the Wichita Eagle, when his patrol car was rear-ended at about 7:05 p.m. by a Toyota Tundra driven by a 23-year-old Haysville man.

The force of the impact pushed the trooper’s Crown Victoria into the back of the semi, Lehnherr said. Brame was inside the patrol car at the time of the crash. He was taken to Wesley Medical Center.

Brame's condition was upgraded from critical to fair Thursday morning.

These kinds of accidents seem to be happening more and more. We discovered that the strobes in the old light bars actually attracted drivers so when the new bright LEDS came in that relieved a lot of accidents. The strobes had something to do with brain wave activity that drew a driver toward them. My get well wishes to Trooper Brame and we need you back so get well soon.
