And now he wants workman’s comp.
An Illinois state trooper who killed two teenage sisters in a high-speed collision, driving 126 mph while sending e-mails and speaking to his girlfriend on his cell phone, has filed a workers’ compensation claim for injuries he says he sustained in the fatal crash.
On the day of the accident, Mitchell was responding at triple-digit speeds to the scene of an incident at which troopers were already present. He was simultaneously e-mailing colleagues and on the phone with his girlfriend, when his car jumped the median and struck the car in which the girls were riding.
“This man has no shame,” Keefe told ABCNews.com. “He had no shame when he changed his story and insisted he was not responsible for that crash, and he continues to have no shame now. That’s gall.”
Keefe said that because Mitchell was a state employee on the job at the time of the crash, the family’s civil case is tied up in a special court of claims, and a jury will never hear the case.

What would happen to us civilians if we killed two teenage girls? Life in prison of course.
