Clardy, a 44-year-old married father of six children, was killed when a car struck his parked cruiser on the side of the Mass. Pike in Charlton on March 16. The car’s driver, David Njuguna, 30, of Webster, was seriously injured in the crash and charged with negligent operation of a motor vehicle and failure to stay within marked lines.
