Police Officer Casey Kohlmeier and his canine, Draco, were killed when their patrol car was struck by a drunk driver on I-55, near mile 201, at approximately 9:30 pm.

Their patrol car was in a median turnaround when another vehicle left the northbound lanes and struck them during a period of heavy rain. Officer Kohlmeier and K9 Draco both suffered fatal injuries in the collision. The driver of the other vehicle survived and was subsequently charged with aggravated DUI.

Officer Kohlmeier was a U.S. Air Force veteran and had served with the Pontiac Police Department for six years. He was assigned to the Livingston County Proactive Unit. He is survived by his mother, father, step-father, step-mother, and four step-siblings.

A friend of mine met your mother today in D.C. Last year was a bit too much, too soon for her to take in so she's there again this year. My Trooper brother is there now because two other Troopers, both friends - one was like my teacher and one was one of my students, were shot and killed last May 1st. I hear your mother spoke very fondly of you, she misses you, so do all of us. Although I have never met you, you are my brother and I am saddened by your death. THANK YOU for your service to our country and your service to the people of Pontiac & the state of Illinois.
Rest well brother Casey, we've got the wath from here.
