DOSWELL, Va. — A plaque is being dedicated to a Virginia State Police trooper killed while working traffic detail at the State Fair of Virginia last year.

Officials say the dedication ceremony is set for Oct. 3 at the Meadow Event Park in Caroline County.

Trooper Andrew D. Fox sustained fatal injuries Oct. 5, 2012, while working at the fair.

The plaque in honor of the Tazewell County native will be mounted outside the park’s public safety operations center and a second plaque will be mounted inside the building.

The state fair opens Friday at The Meadow Event Park in Doswell in Caroline County.
