For the first time ever, an Illinois rest stop was dedicated in honor of a fallen state police officer.

State troopers helped unveil new signs at the stop along I-55 near the town of Raymond.

Trooper Kyle Deatherage was struck and killed while conducting a traffic stop in November 2012.

The day of the crash was his first day back at work after traveling to New Jersey to help the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
