Illinois State Trooper Involved in Car Crash

Illinois State Trooper Involved in Car Crash

An Illinois State Police trooper was involved in a multiple-vehicle auto accident yesterday around 5 p.m. The accident occurred on Interstate 64 at mile marker 13. The officer’s vehicle was rear-ended along with two other vehicles. Authorities report a red sedan veered off the interstate and struck the police car and a light colored sedan. The car that was light in color had significant damage to the rear of the vehicle. All three vehicles had to be towed from the scene of the accident. It is unknown if anyone received medical attention. No charges have been filed, and it is unclear what caused the driver to veer off the road.

Authorities report over 10,000 people are injured or killed in distracted driving auto accidents. Distracted driving has claimed more lives than drunk driving. When a driver of a vehicle uses their phone while driving, they are putting everyone else on the road at risk. Missouri has one of the weakest texting and driving laws in the country which contributes to many crashes.
