ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WXYZ) — A Roseville police officer has been released from the hospital after being involved in a traffic accident Saturday morning.

Around 7:30 a.m., a city of Fraser resident was entering the eastbound 13 Mile and Calahan roadway and collided with a Roseville Police Unit. According to police, the Fraser resident did not properly defrost the windows of his vehicle. Police say it is believed that this directly led to the traffic crash. The man was found at fault and issued a corresponding violation.

The officer was taken to the hospital for an evaluation. He's since been released and is expected to return to full duty early this week, according to a release from police.

The Roseville Police Department reminds drivers that it is against Michigan State Law to drive with obstructed vision – this includes frost and snow-covered windows.
