Two Illinois State Police troopers were hit by a suspected drunk driver early Sunday morning in Chicago.

The troopers are expected to survive.

Illinois State Police said their preliminary investigation shows two ISP vehicles were parked on the shoulder of Interstate 57 at 1:40 a.m. Their emergency lights were on while conducting a traffic stop.

This year, at least 16 ISP troopers have been hit on the road while working an emergency stop. Two troopers were killed.

Illinois has Scott’s Law, which requires people to slow down and move over for emergency responders on the side of the road.
