MARSHALL, IL – A Missouri driver has been charged following a collision with an Illinois State Police (ISP) squad car on Interstate 70. The incident, which occurred on February 16, 2024, near milepost 151 in Clark County, underscores the serious consequences of violating the Move Over Law. Tiffany Paige Henderson, a 32-year-old resident of Florissant, MO, was driving a red Ford when she failed to move over and struck the rear of a stationary ISP squad car with its emergency lights activated.

According to Illinois State Police, the ISP trooper was outside the vehicle attending to a separate weather-related crash at the time of the incident. Fortunately, there were no reported injuries. Henderson now faces charges including Move Over Law violation, failure to reduce speed to avoid a crash, and driving with a suspended license. This crash contributes to a worrying trend in Illinois, with ISP recording 21 Move Over Law-related crashes in 2023, and 23 in 2022, including injuries to eight troopers.
