The truck driver whose rig struck and killed an Illinois State Police trooper last week south of Springfield has been ordered to stop driving commercially.
Federal officials say Johnny Felton, Jr. failed to disclose or properly treat an unidentified medical condition. That condition caused him to lose consciousness while driving northbound on Interstate 55 last week, leading to the accident that took the life of Trooper Kyle Deatherage.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration says Felton would pose an imminent danger to himself and the public if he continued to drive commercially. Felton could still face additional charges for the deadly accident.
