CARLINVILLE -- State police hope a new sign on I-55 will help save more lives. They unveiled the Kyle Deatherage Memorial Highway sign Thursday.

It's in the spot where Trooper Deatherage was killed last year. He was conducting a traffic stop when a semi-truck hit him.

His family says it's a bittersweet day, but they hope the sign will serve as a reminder for drivers. Deatherage is one of two state troopers killed on the side of the road the past year.
