A state trooper who died in the line of duty will continue to have a positive impact on our community this Christmas.
Trooper James Bava was killed in a crash last year, while trying to pull over a speeding suspect in Audrain County.
The toy drive collected more than $18,000 worth of toys for injured or sick children.
They said it's a way to remember him while carrying on his acts of generosity.
Bava's sister got the idea for a toy drive when she remembered something he did when he was just 9-years-old.
The toys will be given to St. Louis Children's Hospital.
