Litchfield, IL (April 23, 2024) – According to authorities’ reports released on Monday, April 22, an Illinois State Police trooper’s patrol vehicle was involved in a collision on Interstate 55 in Macoupin County.

At approximately 9:00 p.m., the collision occurred in the northbound lanes of Interstate 55 near milepost 45.8, just south of Litchfield. A spokesperson for ISP asserts that the trooper’s vehicle obstructed a lane of traffic as the officer assisted another driver when a white Toyota rear-ended the car.

EMTs assessed both the trooper and the Toyota’s 76-year-old driver from Springfield, though their current conditions are unknown. No additional information was available as officials investigated, though citations may be pending.

Our thoughts are extended to the injured victims and their loved ones. We hope for their full recovery at this time.
