The truck driver responsible for the death of an Illinois State Trooper faces three charges related to death.
Several news media outlets are reporting 55-year-old Craig Dittmar, of Stockton, has been arrested and is facing charges related to the tragic death of ISP Trooper Brooke Jones-Story. MyStateline.com lists the charge against Dittmar as "two counts of Reckless Homicide, and one count of Operating a Motor Vehicle While Fatigued Causing Death."
