The Illinois State Police is investigating a traffic crash in Union County late Tuesday night that involved an I-S-P trooper's squad car hit by a driver who failed to move over.

The squad car was parked on the inside shoulder on Interstate 57 northbound near milepost 37.5, just north of Lick Creek Road, with emergency lights activated, handling a motorist assist.

The trooper was inside of the squad car when it was hit. The trooper was transported to an area hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle, 59-year-old Kimberly Keser of Creal Springs, reported no injuries. Keser was cited for the Move Over Law.

A person who violates the Move Over Law faces a fine of no less than $250 and no more than $10,000 for a first offense.
