WYOMING, Mich. -- We are learning more information after an officer-involved crash early Friday morning.

It happened around 1:55 a.m., when a driver driving southbound on U.S. 131 in the northbound lanes struck a Wyoming Department of Public Safety cruiser.

We're told two Wyoming officers were inside the vehicle when it was hit and were injured. They were taken to the hospital and have since been treated and released.

Police also tell FOX 17 they believe the driver who caused the crash may have been intoxicated and speeding. The driver was injured in the crash but is expected to be okay.

All of the northbound lanes of U.S. 131 from 54th Street to M-6  were closed for a few hours while crews cleaned up.

The Kent County Sheriff's office will now take over the investigation and determine any charges if any.
