Commercial Truck Driver Told to Stop Driving by Feds, Could Face Charges in Montgomery County


The trucker involved in the crash that killed an Illinois State Police trooper last week has been ordered to stop driving commercially… and may soon face criminal charges.

 

Johnny Felton, Jr. of Georgia reportedly told authorities that he lost consciousness behind the wheel of his big rig because of a medical condition.

 

He struck and killed Trooper Kyle Deatherage, who was conducting a traffic stop on Interstate 55 south of Springfield.

 

Federal authorities say because Felton failed to disclose or properly control the unidentified medical condition, he poses an imminent danger to himself and others if he continues driving.

 

Montgomery County authorities say they are still looking at criminal charges against Felton for the accident.
