Indiana State Trooper hospitalized after Toll Road collision

By  | 

An Indiana State Trooper was involved in a multiple-vehicle accident Thursday, shortly after noon.

It all took place in the westbound lanes of the Indiana Toll Road, near mile marker 77.

As a vehicle crossed the bridge over the St. Joseph River, the driver lost control and spun out.

The State Trooper approached with lights on, in an attempt to help the driver. At that point, a third vehicle struck the officer's car, pushing it into the first vehicle.

There were no life-threatening injuries, but the officer and some of the vehicles' occupants were transported to a local hospital.
