DETROIT (WXYZ) — A Michigan State Police vehicle was hit by a man reportedly under the influence of marijuana Sunday on southbound I-75 near Davison in Detroit, according to MSP Metro Detroit on Twitter.

The MSP trooper was responding to a different crash at 4:45 p.m. at the same location. The MSP vehicle was on the right shoulder with the emergency lights on when a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu lost control and hit the MSP vehicle.

No one was injured, but the 26-year-old man driving the Malibu admitted to police he had smoked marijuana before driving. He was arrested for driving while impaired.
