Roseville officer hit by driver with frosted windows

At-fault driver issued violation

ROSEVILLE, Mich. – A Roseville police officer was involved in a crash around 7:30 a.m. Saturday that was caused by a driver with frosted windows.

Police say a Fraser resident was entering the eastbound 13 Mile roadway Saturday and collided with a Roseville Police Unit.

The Fraser resident did not defrost the windows of his vehicle. Officials believe this is what caused the crash. As a result, the Fraser resident was issued a corresponding violation.

The Roseville officer was transported to the hospital to be evaluated and is expected to return to work this week. It is against the law in Michigan to drive with obstructed vision. This includes frost and snow-covered windows.
