Brooke Elizabeth Jones-Story

Trooper Brooke Jones-Story was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer while conducting a traffic stop on U.S. Route 20 near State Route 75 in Freeport.

She had stopped another tractor-trailer and was conducting an inspection of it when another truck ran off the road, striking her patrol car before striking her and the truck she was inspecting.

The driver of the truck that struck her was charged with several traffic citations.

Trooper Jones-Story had served with the Illinois State Police for 12 years and was assigned to District 16 in Pecatonica. She is survived by her husband.

In August 2019, the U.S. Route 20 overpass in Freeport was renamed Trooper Brooke Jones-Story Overpass.

The incident of Trooper Elizabeth Jones-Story is genuinely saddening. Her life should not have been lost that day. She was more than just a trooper. Elizabeth seemed to be a loving wife and had a bright future ahead of her. It brings joy to me that she wanted to expand her farm, and it makes me happy that her husband, Robert, is continuing her dream.
