‘Are you out of your mind?’ -- Drunk driver nearly strikes MSP cruiser on the Davison, police say

DETROIT – A drunk driver almost struck a Michigan State Police cruiser Saturday on the Davison Freeway, police said.

According to MSP, multiple troopers were in cars blocking off the the westbound lanes of the Davison Freeway due to an investigation into a collision.

Just after 3 a.m., a vehicle missed striking the rear of one of the police cruisers. The trooper moved his vehicle out of the way when he saw the car approaching at a high rate of speed. After attempting to pull the driver over before it reached the investigation on the road, police used a PIT maneuver to stop the vehicle.

Her blood alcohol content was reportedly at 0.27% after using a breathalyzer.

Police said the driver, a 37-year-old woman, was taken into custody for operating while intoxicated.

No injuries were reported.
