DOSWELL, Va. (AP) -- A ceremony has been held to remember a state trooper who died while directing traffic at the State Fair of Virginia.

More than 70 law enforcement officers and state and local officials attended a ceremony Thursday for Andrew D. Fox at The Meadow Event Park in Caroline County.

Two plaques bearing his name will be mounted at the park, one outside the public safety operations center and another inside the building.

The 27-year-old Fox died Oct. 5, 2012, when he was struck by an SUV while on special assignment at the State Fair.

Fox joined the state police in 2006 and had been with the Wytheville division at the time of his death.
