The Maryland flag will fly at half-staff until after the funeral of a state trooper who was killed in a crash on Saturday.

Police say Trooper First Class Shaft S. Hunter may have been pursuing a speeding motorcycle when his vehicle hit a tractor-trailer early Saturday.

A witness reported being passed by a speeding motorcycle and then a state police cruiser, which then hit the tractor-trailer. Police say Hunter was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

State officials say the flag will be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of the funeral.

Since this story was first reported, funeral plans have been announced. A viewing for Hunter is set for 4 p.m. Thursday at the Vaughn C. Greene funeral home in Randallstown and the funeral itself will follow Friday at 11 a.m. at New Antioch Baptist Church also in Randallstown.
