A police traffic stop on the Southfield Freeway in Detroit was anything but routine early Sunday morning. A driver plowed his SUV into the back of a Michigan State Police patrol car. WWMT reported the massive crash left the stopped car’s two occupants, the state trooper and the SUV’s driver all hospitalized with non-critical injuries. Michigan State Police suspect the person behind the wheel of the SUV was driving impaired.
According to MSP, the trooper standing on the highway during the crash suffered no broken bones despite being knocked down against the road surface. He might incredibly escape the crash with a torn tendon and road rage from being pulled across the pavement. It’s always frustrating to see preventable crashes like this where others are put in danger because of one person’s irresponsible actions.
