VAN BUREN COUNTY, Mich. — Michigan State Police troopers are begging drivers to be careful on the roads after two patrol vehicles were hit Thursday.

The first happened while troopers were out policing a crash on eastbound I-94 near mile marker 46 in Van Buren County.

No troopers were in the vehicle at the time and no one was injured.

“Again motorists, roadways are dangerously slick!” MSP said in a tweet. “We really, really, really need everyone to please slow down.”

The second patrol vehicle was struck while parked in the median in the same location later that day, MSP says. We're told one trooper suffered minor injuries in the incident.
