Michigan State Police is investigating a traffic crash that occurred Monday evening on Linden Road near Lennon Road in Flint Township that involved a patrol vehicle from the Flint Post and a civilian vehicle. Preliminary investigation has revealed that the two troopers were traveling south on Linden Road in one patrol vehicle when they observed a vehicle traveling north on Linden Road commit a traffic violation. The troopers began to turn around to conduct a traffic stop on the vehicle when they entered the path of another southbound vehicle, resulting in the southbound vehicle striking the patrol vehicle in the driver's side door. The southbound civilian vehicle, described as a 2018 Chevy Malibu, was occupied by three people. The driver, a 28-year-old Mount Morris woman, was transported to an area hospital where she was treated and released. The front seat passenger, a 38-year-old pregnant woman from Flint, was transported to an area hospital for treatment. The rear-seat passenger, an 18-year-old woman from Mount Morris, did not require medical treatment. The driver of the patrol vehicle was transported to an area hospital for treatment, and was released a short time later. The passenger of the patrol vehicle was not injured. In accordance with department policy, the trooper driving the patrol vehicle was placed on paid suspension, pending review of the crash investigation. Upon completion of the investigation, it will be presented to the Genesee County Prosecutor's Office for review.
