Patrol Car Heavily Damaged In Two-Vehicle TC Crash

By Beth Milligan | April 21, 2021

A Michigan State Police patrol car was heavily damaged and a trooper taken to Munson Medical Center as a precaution Tuesday following a two-vehicle crash near the intersection of Hammond and Garfield roads.

The trooper was responding to a personal injury crash near Chums Corners in Grand Traverse County at 4pm Tuesday and had his emergency lights and siren activated. He was stopped near the Hammond/Garfield intersection and was beginning to edge forward after traffic stopped for him when he was struck by another driver, who was going through the intersection and could not see the patrol car due to the stopped traffic. The patrol car was heavily damaged, while the other vehicle overturned.

The trooper was taken to Munson as a precaution. The occupants of the other vehicle refused medical treatment at the scene. The crash remains under investigation.
