GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.–Icy roads are what caused an officer-involved crash Saturday night, according to police.

Leonard St. NE between Plymouth and Perkins was shut down due to icy road conditions and crashes. While a male officer was responding to the crash to shut down the road, another car ran into his cruiser.

Police said he sustained only minor injuries, and was able to drive himself to the hospital for treatment. There’s no word on what happened to the driver who crashed into the cruiser.

As of this writing, the road is still closed due to its unsafe driving conditions.

    Inaccurate headline writing. Icy roads can’t CAUSE an accident. Poor driving by the driver of the vehicle that hit him was the cause of the crash.

    • You are stupid.

      Are you stupid? Sometimes even if you drive realy carefull And its slippery your car slips.. But wait your turn dumass!

      you are idiot, you need to stop driving and should give up your license if you have because doesn’t matter how good driver you are but bad weather especially icy road make difference.

    You 2 morons are dumb as a bag of stones. A road can’t cause an accident whether it is icy, wet, covered in fog, dark or any other condition. The facts are that someone lost control of their vehicle and hit a cop car. The ticket will read “Driving too fast for conditions” and/or “Failure to stop within an assured clear distance”. Btw, I have been driving for over 34 years without a single traffic ticket or at fault accident and I have driven hundreds of thousands miles on snowy and icy roads.

      Yea yea throw us facts which we won’t know if they are true.. If you really know about driving you would know that it’s almos impossible to control a car in the ice no matter how good of a driver you are or even if you have the best tires.. Doesn’t matter how far or in what conditions you drive.. Your car will slide in the ice even if you are the best driver out there piece of shyt people like you need to be put in a mental hospital

        You really are stupid. I never said ice wasn’t slippery and yes a car can slide on ice but using your theory then every car that has ever driven on a slippery road would crash. Perhaps you should shut up now before you come off as being even more ignorant than you have already shown yourself to be. Btw, did you enjoy riding the short bus all those years?
