Illinois State Trooper Laid to Rest
Friends, family, and fellow troopers said a final farewell today to an Illinois state police officer killed in the line of duty.
James Sauter was killed last Thursday during a crash on the Tri-State Tollway near Northbrook, outside of Chicago.
Troopers and officers arrived at the funeral dressed in full uniform, with black bands on their badges to honor Sauter.
The 28-year-old was killed when a semi crashed into the back of his patrol car.
State police believe the driver was speeding and using a lane restricted for cars.
