Francisco Espinal-Quiroz, 51, could face more charges in the highway deaths of four people Monday, July 21, including Ulrike Blopleh of Channahon.

It's was a horrible accident. My heart goes out to the families. The news did a cover story on thisRead More stretch of highway. It showed 172 accident 6 deaths and 58 injuries. The state needs to take a look into that. I do feel his bail is excessive. Let alone made him out to look like a murderer who intentionally did this. I guarantee he wishes it was him rather than to take 4 lives. I think there are many occupations that don't require log books yet these people have been up for 24 hrs + and they get behind the wheel. Yes he should be held responsible but There are people committing horrific crimes that don't get that kind of bail. I know when something horrible happens they want to throw the book at that person. Unfortunately nothing will change the outcome. A perfect example is cell phones. Many deaths have resulted from people causing accidents while on the phone. It's against the law to use them when driving but I see it every day. I will say people are responsible for there actions and there the only ones to blame. Don't put the blame on the state police. That's not on them. I feel for them and everyone on that scene because no doubt it was a horrific accident scene

Truth, the driver of that tractor trailer rig has only so far been charged with log bookRead More falsification. I had posted earlier that if what is alleged comes out to be fact, that guy needs to get a minimum of 25 years in the penitentiary. Well, I just heard on the six o'clock news that he is likely to be charged soon with vehicular homicide, which carries a maximum sentence of 28 years.
EAGLEYE July 22, 2014 at 10:22 pm
Ex-Jolietian, obviously the troopers cannot hammer them all, but they can and will crackdown on theRead More ones that break the law. They will do that for sure along with doing tough roadside safety inspections of their rigs. Any time there is an accident of this magnitude involving tractor trailer rigs, you will see stepped up police action on these rigs and their drivers. Don't forget also the fines in construction zones double and an accident involving a fatality let alone four victims would spell lots of years for the driver if convicted.

From what I've seen the worst truckers are the guys that handle shipping containers....they tend toRead More drive the oldest trucks...and guys that drive gravel/grain trucks. They get paid by the load, not by the mile or by the hour. More loads, more money.

ok, wait a minute.....if a dog is labelled "vicious" there would be some kind of note, orRead More tag, or "do not touch" signage on the cage. In addition, if this dog was truly vicious, it would not be available for adoption. Seriously, are we supposed to believe that someone is that freaking dumb? I especially love the part about "has lost and will continue to lose great gains she otherwise would have made and acquired." Seems like she was able to afford a land shark, or do you say attorney, so she must have "gains" already. Stupid, stupid woman.

Hey wompbomp... I have a few questions/comments for you, kind sir... 1.)Do you have a job? Or do youRead More just sit on your arse all day trying to find the end of the internet until mommy makes you dinner? 2.)If you're so disgusted with the LW area... Why don't you move instead of staying here and beyotching about it? Shit or get off the pot dude. 3.)A lot of people sleep around regardless of the occupation, soooo umm... Way to keep it relevant bud.... Talking about how the firefighters enjoy eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches would have been just as relevant to this story as your "sikbern" about them enjoying hookers. 4.)At the end of the day, lives were lost and you're negating the sadness of that by bringing your crazy talk to this forum. Clearly you have personal issues with one/some of the brave and selfless first responders employed by the village of Mokena, and you've decided to "get your revenge" by posting "sikberns" on an open Internet forum... Does it make you feel better? Better make a passive aggressive away message for your aim profile too just to really make yourself feel like a big tough guy. 5.) Lastly, if you're that concerned with the whereabouts of hookers in this town, why don't you keep your mother and sister off the streets and help them find new jobs?! Sikbern

sCarah.83 “…brave and selfless first responders…”? Hardly, modernRead More firefighters, whether you choose to accept it or not have a cushy high paying job with early retirement, great pension, and a remote chance of job injury. Mokena once had a volunteer dept. that was probably better for a fraction of the cost. You probably don’t remember the flashing blue lights the guys had on their cars when responding. You yuppies with your easy and fake unearned money ruined this village. As for moving from this area I have a better idea, you move. This place was far better when it was “blue collar”.

When you shoot a 9mm there is a recoil & the gun would have fallen out of her hand (when she died) the muscles would have relaxed.

That also sounds Very Strange!!! It sounds like a MURDER to me. They should have gone back to the scene, checked the sink & the pipes for gunshot residue. Were her Fingerprints even on the Gun???
