Illinois Trooper’s Car Slammed by DUI Driver: 13th Scott’s Law Violation Crash of 2023


Share post:

COUNTRYSIDE, IL – Early morning chaos erupted on Interstate 55 as an Illinois State Police (ISP) squad car, parked on the shoulder, was struck by a Toyota Camry, marking the 13th Scott’s Law-related crash this year.

According to ISP reports, it happened early Thursday at 2:39 a.m. while an ISP Trooper was awaiting a tow for an abandoned vehicle near LaGrange Road in Cook County. With his emergency lights flashing, the squad car became an unintended target for 36-year-old Martin Analco. Driving his Toyota Camry, Analco reportedly rammed into the squad car’s rear. Fortunately, the Trooper was outside and remained unscathed. Analco, a Chicago resident, was hospitalized with non-severe injuries and later faced multiple alleged charges, including Aggravated DUI.

This incident amplifies concerns over the increasing Move Over Law violations. Last year, 23 such crashes injured eight troopers. ISP is urging drivers to adhere to Scott’s Law, which mandates slowing down and moving over for vehicles with active emergency or hazard lights. Fines for non-compliance range from $250 to $10,000, with potential license suspension if injuries occur.
