There was a collision in which a car struck a parked Illinois State Police (ISP) car early Sunday morning (August 28, 2016) on I-355 in Addison.
According to prosecutors, the collision happened on southbound I-355, north of Army Trail Road, at 12:44 a.m.
At that time – despite the police car having its emergency lights and “arrow stick” on, and being parked on the right shoulder of the expressway – the woman crashed into the parked car.
Illinois State Trooper Klecka, who was sitting in the car at the time of the crash, suffered injuries that were considered to be non-life-threatening in nature.
The woman, identified as Natasha Mister, 31, of Maywood, was charged with several traffic offenses, including one felony count of aggravated DUI causing great bodily harm.
