A Pennsylvania State Trooper was killed earlier today in a crash at the intersection of Route 251 and Route 168 in South Beaver Township. The accident, which involved a State Police cruiser and a tractor trailer, was reported around 10:15 a.m.

Sources tell the Beaver Countian that Trooper Blake Coble was transported to Heritage Valley Beaver following the accident, where he was pronounced dead. The driver of the truck, Gregory Golkosky, age 47 of Westmoreland County, was not injured.

Trooper Coble joined the Pennsylvania State Police in 1988, and was stationed at the Beaver Barracks — He was scheduled to retire in January. Coble, age 47, is survived by his wife and two children.

“His untimely death left two children without a father and wife without a husband, plus countless friends and family members grieving” said State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan in a written statement. “He died serving the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the men and women of the Pennsylvania State Police mourn his loss and extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends.”

The cause of the crash is under investigation.

  1. I am deeply saddened by this news. I met & worked with Trooper Coble a couple times when I was with the railroad. He was a great guy and a first class police officer. My heart goes out to his family, the troopers stationed in Beaver County, the Pa. State Police and all brother and sister police officers everywhere. This is a tragic loss. Blake will be dearly missed.

  14. I saw him this morning about 10 minutes before that happened. I wish I would have been speeding or something at the time I saw him then perhaps it would have never happened. I’m so sorry Trooper Coble. God bless you and your family…
