PoliceLink Officer Down Remembers...



Trooper James Sauter
Illinois State Police

Illinois


End of Watch: Thursday, March 28, 2013



Biographical Information:
Age: 28
Tour of Duty: 5 Years
Badge Number: 6095


Incident Details:
Cause of Death: Automobile accident
Incident Date: Thursday, March 28, 2013
Weapon: Not Applicable
Suspect info: Not Applicable




Trooper Sauter was killed when a semi-trailer truck struck his cruiser on Interstate 294 south of Willow Road shortly after 11:00 p.m. He was stopped in the left shoulder of the south-bound lanes when the semi rear-ended his cruiser, causing both vehicles to burst into flames. He was pronounced dead at the scene.


Trooper Sauter was a licensed pilot, and had just completed a temporary assignment in the State Police Air Operations. He was a 5-year veteran of the State Police. As a cadet, he was awarded a Lifesaving Medal in October 2008 when, on his way to the state Police Training Academy, he saw a motorcycle on its side on eastbound Interstate 80 with no emergency vehicles  there. He got his First Responder bag and crossed over the lanes to help. He tended to a woman whose airway was blocked by blood.  She was airlifted to a hospital and survived.

 

He is survived by his wife and family.

Rest in peace Trooper Sauter. I'll keep you, your family, friends and co-workers in my thoughts and prayers.
