A Michigan State Police trooper was involved in a crash on southbound I-75 at 12 Mile early Wednesday morning.

Police say the trooper saw a car traveling at a high rate of speed around 2:45 a.m. and tried to initiate a traffic stop.

When the trooper took off, police say he lost control of the vehicle and hit the center media wall. The trooper was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and has since been released.

The highway was shut down for a couple of hours but did reopen before rush hour.
