The former Illinois State Police trooper who's looking to get his driver's license back after killing two girls will have to wait. Matt Mitchell was supposed to go before a review board for the fifth time to plead his case Tuesday, but the hearing was cancelled. He's been without a license for several years.
It was taken away after the 2007 Interstate 64 crash that killed Jessica and Kelli Uhl from Collinsville. He'd been driving more than 120-miles-an-hour while using his cell phone and computer just before the crash near O'Fallon. He pleaded guilty to reckless homicide and served more than two-years on probation. He says he needs his license back so he can take care of his family.
