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.
