Illinois State Police, until today, CONCEALED THE IDENTITY FOR 10 DAYS of a truck driver who intentionally rammed his semi truck into 14 vehicles…running over some of them–killing two young sisters instantly, and now two more have died!
The driver, MOHAMMED YUSSEF JAMA–IS NOT IN CUSTODY AND SO FAR ILLINOIS IS REFUSING TO EVEN CITE HIM!
THIS WAS A TERROR ATTACK!
Vigil held for the victims
Illinois State Police on Saturday released the name of the driver who was behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer that smashed into seven cars at highway speed, killing two Staunton sisters, their friend, and another student.
Mohamed Yussuf Jama, 53, of Greeley, Colo., was the truck driver, according to Illinois State Police spokesman Calvin Dye Jr.
No citations had been issued to Jama as of Saturday.
“The investigation into the crash is ongoing,” Dye said.
Jama could not immediately be reached for comment Saturday.
State Police investigators are reviewing Jama’s medical records, toxicology, commercial driver log books and the truck, Dye said.
Jama’s 2016 Freightliner Cascadia slammed into cars on Interstate 55 with “no attempt to stop,” Dye said. The cars were slowed or stopped in traffic, ahead of the truck. The semi ran over some vehicles.
Illinois State Police say eight vehicles were involved in the crash, which occurred at about 6:15 p.m. Nov. 21 on I-55’s southbound side at milepost 27, just south of Hamel. There were 12 people with injuries and four confirmed fatalities.
