DETROIT (AP) – A Michigan State Police trooper suffered a head injury when a vehicle struck his patrol car in Detroit.

The crash happened at 6:55 a.m. Saturday on I-75.

State police say the trooper was trying to pull behind a car involved in a wreck on the highway shoulder. That’s when the driver of a sport utility vehicle slammed into the marked patrol car.
