CHICAGO, April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Illinois Semi Truck Accident Victims Center says, "As hopefully most people in Illinois have heard Illinois State Trooper Brooke Jones-Story was killed in an accident involving a truck on March 28, 2019. In this instance Trooper Story was inspecting a truck on the side of the road when another truck hit Trooper Story's patrol car and she was killed. This is the second Illinois State Trooper needlessly killed since the first of the year.
"If you are a motorist anywhere in the State of Illinois on an Interstate Highway and you see a state or county police car on the side of the road involved in a traffic stop please slow down and if possible-move over a lane to keep the police officer safe. If the state or county police vehicle has its emergency lights on it means slow down-and move over. We should honor our state, county and local police by driving responsibly----especially when they are trying to do their job-to protect us." http://Illinois.SemiTruckAccidentVictimsCenter.Com
Fifteen Illinois State Troopers have been hit by vehicles since Jan. 1 of this year and continues an unexplained spike in crashes. State police said the crashes were related to violations of Scott's Law, which mandates drivers to move over and slow down for emergency vehicles. https://fox59.com/2019/03/29/illinois-state-trooper-killed-in-roadside-crash-for-second-time-since-january/
