Illinois police plan safety crackdown on anniversary of Trooper death

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Illinois State Police plan a statewide safety crackdown on Friday. It’s in memory of State Trooper James Sauter from southern Illinois. He was killed one year ago today in a fiery accident near Chicago. He was in his squad car, when a tractor-trailer rear-ended his car.
“Operation Sauter” will target commercial vehicles cracking down on speeding, drunk or distracted drivers, and seatbelt violations.
