UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- Flags at the police department are flying half-staff in honor of fallen officers. They're joining departments from across the state to remember 29-year old Officer Casey Kohlmeier and his K-9, Draco, who were killed in an accident on I-55 Wednesday night.

33-year old Jason Collins was driving the truck which reportedly hit Kohlmeier's squad car. Collins is charged with aggravated DUI.
