(KMOV) -- Former Illinois State Trooper Matt Mitchell will not receive workers’ compensation for an injury he suffered during a car wreck that killed two young sisters in 2007.

An arbitrator rejected Mitchell’s benefits claim on Friday for a knee injury that happened in the line of duty the day he crashed into Kelli and Jessica Uhl’s vehicle.
Investigators say Mitchell was driving 126 miles per hour when he crossed the median on I-64 and hit the girls’ car.
Mitchell can appeal the rejection.
