I am sure Illinois State Troopers will be on the watch for people not moving over. Sounds like a pretty horrible day for 2 truck drivers and the late troopers family.

Tried to post the link but TT says the link is not valid

Sad. Link works if you highlight and select a browser or copy/paste.

Seems to be a TT thing...

Illinois just lost another state trooper yesterday because a truck hit her while she was making a stop on another semi. I was on 70 and went South through Effingham towards Memphis and the cops were thick pulling trucks over. Granted sometimes you get blocked buy an oversize load on the corner and can't see what's ahead of you on the shoulder but I saw so many trucks not getting in the left lane... SMH. Almost happened to me once but I slowed way down had my flashers on because the cars wouldn't let me over... I still hugged my Lane to the left.

I was on 20 when this happened in front of us. We were routed to BUS 20 where we had to route around another officers funeral precession.

All a crazy scene.
