Illinois State Trooper hit during routine traffic stop

(KMOV) – Police are searching for the driver of a van that rammed into an Illinois State trooper, during a routine traffic stop, at 15th and Lynch in East St. Louis, Tuesday night. 

Illinois State Police say the trooper pulled a blue van over during a routine stop and the driver of the van rammed into the trooper’s car and took off. 
 
The trooper did not know the van had been stolen earlier, Tuesday, because the information was not entered into the computer system.
