Default Officer down

From the State Police: Collinsville – Illinois State Police Director Hiram Grau today released the following statement regarding the fatal crash that claimed t...he life of a D-18 (Litchfield) State Trooper this morning.

“It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that I announce the tragic death of Trooper Kyle Deatherage. Trooper Deatherage left a legacy of courage and duty and today he is surrounded by the respect of his fellow officers and by the love of his friends and family. Our hearts are heavy with grief, but they are also strengthened by Trooper Deatherage’s brave calling,” Grau said.

While conducting a traffic stop this morning just after 9 a.m., Trooper Deatherage was killed in the line of duty when he was struck by a truck-tractor semi on I-55 at milepost 62. He was pronounced at the scene and had been a member of the Illinois State Police since May 31, 2009. Trooper Deatherage was assigned to District 18 as a motorcycle officer.

Sad news and it happens too often.


The mission and my precious cargo are my concern. I will never surrender. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever embarrass my country
