"After the motorist assist the driver made a 911 call. The driver made statements which prompted law enforcement to conduct a second welfare check," explained Illinois Conservation Police Commander Robert Frazier.

That’s when a state trooper and conservation police officer located the driver eastbound on I-88 near Route 30.

"The driver did an abrupt u-turn and struck the trooper pinning him with his vehicle in the squad car," said Frazier.

Police say the driver continued to accelerate pinning the trooper. That’s when the conservation police officer fired. There’s no word on how many shots he fired. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with the decedent's family, the Illinois State Trooper and his family, and our Conservation Officer and his family," said Frazier.

Both officers were transported to the hospital and later treated and released. The investigation has since been turned over to Illinois State Police.
