This article is more than 8 years old.

Funeral services have been scheduled for a Massachusetts state trooper who died Wednesday as a result of injuries she suffered when a drunk driver slammed into her cruiser eight years ago.

State police said Trooper Ellen Engelhardt died following "traumatic and life-altering injuries" from the 2003 crash.

A wake will be held Sunday afternoon at the MacDonald Funeral Home in Marshfield. A law enforcement walk-by will be held just before it. The funeral will be held Monday morning at Saint Christine's Catholic Church in Marshfield.

Witnesses told police that William Senne was driving 90 miles per hour when he hit Engelhardt's cruiser in the breakdown lane of Route 25 in Wareham.

Senne pleaded guilty to drunken driving and was sentenced in 2005 to 2 1/2 years in prison.
