Posted by wlpo on March 27, 2016

For this the third year, Illinois State Police is remembering one of their own killed in the line of duty. ISP will launch “Operation Sauter” Monday focusing for 24 hours on commercial motor vehicle enforcement. Special attention will also be given to speeding, seatbelts, DUI and distracted driving.

Trooper James Sauter was killed March 28, 2013 when his squad car was struck by a truck tractor semi-trailer on I-294. In the last 3 years, the ISP says commercial motor vehicles were responsible for the deaths of 2 troopers and seriously injuring a third one.
