Dear God.... Update.....

An Illinois State trooper was killed early Saturday morning by a wrong-way driver who struck his vehicle on Interstate 94 in the westbound lanes, according to a release from Illinois State Police.

About 3:25 a.m., Trooper Gerald Ellis, 36, was on-duty in his squad car traveling home on I-94 near mile post 166.75 in Green Oaks when a wrong-way driver who was driving eastbound in the westbound lanes, struck Ellis head on, the release said.

Translation probably a drunk driver a dark day for ISP.

Went through there a few hours ago on our way to Milwaukee we heard on the cb there was a fatality but didnt know it was a cop. Very sad, wasnt there another state trooper killed a few weeks ago in Illinois?
