Michigan State Police cruiser crushed in crash, multiple serious injuries

Multiple people are seriously injured, including MSP troopers, after a bad crash in Muskegon Thursday night.

MUSKEGON, Mich. — Two Michigan State Police troopers are in the hospital with serious injuries after a crash with a stolen car in Muskegon Thursday night.

MSP says that troopers from the Grand Rapids Post were involved in a crash at the intersection of Holbrook and Peck while assisting in pursuing the stolen vehicle.

Police say that the stolen vehicle was heading westbound on Holbrook and struck the assisting MSP cruiser at the intersection of Peck.

The two occupants of the suspect car and two troopers were taken to the hospital with serious injuries, Lt. Michelle Robinson of the MSP said.

The crash happened around 9:15 p.m. on Peck Street near Marsh Field.

Muskegon firefighters said one of the officers was trapped inside the car as it caught fire. The other vehicle also caught fire after it crashed into the building, firefighters said, and crews had to pull out a trapped occupant. 

MSP said Friday that one of the teens was taken to a Grand Rapids hospital and the other remains hospitalized at a Muskegon hospital.

One trooper was released from the hospital, while the other remains hospitalized.

The Michigan State Police Fifth District Investigative Team and Sixth District Accident Investigator are investigating the incident.

"This is a situation that we never want to deal with, especially when we're dealing with other individuals. We never want to see this happen. And so our thoughts go out to the troopers, their families, the families of the individuals that were in the other vehicle...it's a senseless thing that happens," said Lt. Robinson.
