DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA)– Workers responding to those accidents are reminding people to obey the laws. An Illinois State Police Trooper in Downers Grove died on duty yesterday. Christopher Lambert was responding to a crash when another vehicle hit him. Tow truck drivers are reminding everyone to slow down and move over.
