Trooper fatally injures pedestrian in E. Peoria

Posted by wlpo on August 14, 2016

A strange set of circumstances early Saturday in East Peoria involving a State Trooper and a ….now, dead pedestrian.  ISP Captain Steven Riesenberg is with District 8.  Riesenberg says a preliminary investigation indicated a State Trooper – who was not identified – was driving in the left lane of Route 116 when he struck a pedestrian walking in the middle of the unlit highway. It happened near the intersection of Centennial Drive.

The Trooper was not hurt but was taken to the hospital to be examined. Investigation continues by various agencies of the State Police.  No further information is being released at this time.
