(Easton) -- A state police trooper who was critically injured in a roadside confrontation in Northampton County has been moved out of the hospital's intensive care unit.

Captain Richard D'Ambrosio says Corporal Seth Kelly's condition has improved, but he's still facing a long road to recovery.

The 13-year veteran was helping another trooper arrest a man they suspected of driving under the influence of marijuana when a fight broke out November 7.

Kelly was shot in the neck, shoulder area and leg during the fight.

The suspect, 22-year-old Daniel Clary, was shot several times and hospitalized. He has since been released into police custody.

Clary is facing charges including attempted murder of a law enforcement officer and aggravated assault.
