CAPE MAY, N.J. — New Jersey State Trooper Robert Higbee testified yesterday that he did not see a stop sign at the Upper Township intersection where two teenage sisters died after he plowed his police cruiser into their minivan in 2006.

"The last few frames in my mind are braking, looking, and darkness," Higbee said during an emotional day on the witness stand.
