Michigan State Police share video of scary crash as warning to slow down in bad weather

DETROIT — Michigan State Police tweeted video of a crash that happened Wednesday in Detroit. They reminded everyone about slowing down especially when the weather is bad.

Police said, “We talk about slowing down in bad weather and giving us a lane. The trooper saw it coming and was trying to get another car to block the ramp. They never made it. Please give us a lane.”

The scary moment happened as a trooper was writing up a crash that happened in the express lane on I-96. Police told Detroit Free Press that someone came down the ramp too fast, and lost control and hit the tow truck that had responded to the scene.

Thankfully, the trooper and the tow truck driver were not injured.

Lt. Mike Shaw told Detroit Free Press, “…the tow truck driver actually ran into the lanes of travel and he was pretty lucky that another car wasn’t traveling in the right lane or else he would’ve been hit by that car.”

The driver who crashed into the tow truck was cited.
