Michigan State Police released alarming dash cam video from a crash involving a semi truck and a state police cruiser that happened earlier this month.
The crash happened shortly before 8 a.m. on April 8, on eastbound I-94 near Lawrence, Michigan.
In the video, 24 year old Virginia-based truck driver Easton Norby-Varclac strikes a police cruiser driven by Michigan State Police Trooper Cole Knaup as it is parked in the right lane of the interstate, blocking traffic for a previous crash.
