VIDEO: FL Trooper Struck by Car, Critically Injured

While Carlos Rosario, a father of two and a respected 12-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol, remained at Jackson Memorial Hospital on Saturday, the FHP identified the driver who struck him as Hugo Olivares.

FHP reported Olivares, 26, was driving a black 2014 Chevy when he lost control and hit Rosario on Friday morning. Miami-Dade Fire Rescue airlifted Rosario to JMH's Ryder Trauma Center.

Dr. Carl Schulman, a trauma surgeon, said Rosario suffered mostly orthopedic injuries to his face, spine and lower extremities. Rosario, who had been in critical condition but was stable Saturday, required a blood transfusion and several surgeries.

"Our troopers and all law enforcement officers put their lives on the line every day in the pursuit of public safety," an FHP spokesperson said in a statement. "Please keep Trooper Rosario, his family, his brother, who is a fellow FHP trooper, and all members of FHP Troop E, in your prayers."

The 37-year-old FHP trooper was conducting a speed-related traffic stop on the Dolphin Expressway at about Northwest 107th Avenue when he was injured after a driver lost control of his car and struck the trooper, according to FHP Sgt. Mark Wysocky. The incident remains under investigation.

We are prayoing for Trooper Rosario and for his family. Although all the facts of this case are still to be determined, we hope it was not a deliberate attempt on his life.
