An Illinois State Police Sergeant was injured in a crash Thursday evening on I-94 at 75th Street in Cook County.

According to the ISP, the sergeant was in a fully marked squad car with its emergency lights on. The trooper was at an earlier crash site. Police say a vehicle driven by 61-year-old Phillip McKenzie veered off the roadway and hit the ISP sergeant's vehicle.

The sergeant was taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released. McKenzie was also taken to a hospital with non-life-threatening inquires.

A woman in McKenzie's vehicle wasn't hurt. McKenzie is charged with an aggravated Scott's Law violation, aggravated driving under the influence, and driving without a license. There have been twelve crashes involving Scott's Law violations this year in Illinois.

Seven ISP troopers have been injured as a result. The ISP is reminding drivers to move over or slow down when there is a parked emergency vehicle or any vehicle with its hazard lights on.
