Illinois State Trooper Arrested for Drunk Driving

By October 26, 2008July 23rd, 2019Auto Accidents

In 2008 an Illinois state trooper driving 120 miles an hour slammed into a car killing to sisters. Near that site another state trooper has been involved in an accident, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.
This time the trooper, Jeffrey Gagen, was driving the wrong way on Interstate 64 near the Scott Air Force Base exit when he struck an oncoming car. Fortunately, the driver of the other vehicle only suffered minor injuries.
Gagen was arrested at the scene and charged with driving under the influence.
The lawyer representing the sisters who died last year called the latest incident an example of a department that can’t control its officers.
