Michigan State Police car hit twice as snow storm blankets the Midwest


A major winter storm is forcing law enforcement agencies to remind people to slow down on the roads due to slippery conditions.

In Michigan, a trooper stuck in his patrol car was sideswiped by two speeding vehicles within a few seconds of each other.

According to Michigan State Police Metro Detroit’s twitter account, the trooper was stopped with his lights on Sunday night after he became stuck in the snow. He was radioing dispatch when an SUV failed to stop and sideswiped the car. Just a few moments later, a second SUV crashed into the patrol car.

The trooper in the patrol car suffered minor injuries and complained of a sore back and neck.

The driver and passengers in both SUVs refused treatment.

That road in Oakland County was shut down for a few hours as the patrol car was towed away.

No word if the drivers of the SUVs will face any charges.

The winter storm is expected to create hazardous conditions on the roads for the next few days.
