An Illinois State Police trooper injured in a fiery crash one year ago was pressing DuPage County prosecutors to file more serious criminal charges against the trucker who allegedly caused the wreck.
The family of an Illinois State Police trooper who was severely injured last year in a crash that also killed a tollway worker has demanded more serious charges against the trucker blamed for the wreck.
2,000 Chicago Police and other law enforcement officers assembled east of Soldier Field for the annual St. Jude March to honor fallen officers.
A truck driver has pleaded not guilty to charges he falsified his logbook, after a crash that killed an IDOT worker and left a state trooper in a coma.
Prosecutors said a truck driver accused of causing a fiery crash that killed a tollway worker and critically injured a state trooper had been on the job more than a day-and-a-half, with less than four hours of sleep.
