Press Release Date: March 1, 2010    || Archived August 27, 2010
On Saturday, February 27 at approximately 9:20 p.m., an Illinois State Police Trooper, while conducting a traffic stop on Interstate 94 northbound at the 63rd Street express lanes, was struck by a passing vehicle causing multiple serious injuries to the Trooper.

The driver of the vehicle, Kimisha Moore, 19 years of age, of Chicago, was charged with Aggravated Reckless Conduct, a Class 4 Felony. At the time of the crash, preliminary investigations indicates Ms. Moore was distracted while looking at her cellular phone. Ms. Moore is being held at the Chicago Police Department Area 4 headquarters awaiting a bond hearing on Monday, March 1.

Motorists are reminded that taking your eyes off of the road for even a few seconds can end in tragedy. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration records indicate that nearly 6,000 people died last year in crashes which involved a distracted or inattentive driver, and more than 500,000 were injured. The Illinois State Police is reminding motorists how important it is to practice safe driving habits and eliminate distractions within the driver’s control while operating a motor vehicle. Drivers are also reminded of the "Move Over" law, which requires motorists to slow down and, if possible, change lanes when approaching police, emergency or construction vehicles displaying flashing warning lights.

The public is reminded an individual is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
