A Michigan State Police trooper from the Brighton Post escaped serious injury early Monday when his patrol car was rear-ended by a suspected drunk driver.
Ironically, the incident, which happened at approximately 1:36 a.m., occurred while the trooper was investigating an Operating While Intoxicated (OWl) crash on westbound-94 near Zeeb Road in Washtenaw County’s Scio Twp.
While blocking part of the lane for the tow truck, another driver who was said to be intoxicated, struck the patrol car while the trooper was inside.
The trooper was taken to the hospital for minor injuries.
The 33-year-old suspect from Canton who struck the patrol car was arrested for OWl.
