A crash on Interstate 75 in Detroit near the Davison Freeway was struck by another vehicle while responding. Luckily there were no injuries reported after the accident. The driver who struck the State Trooper claimed to have lost control of the vehicle, went all the way up the embankment and managed to crash into the right side or passenger side of the Trooper’s Vehicle.
A twist to the story is that the driver admitted to smoking marijuana and then driving which is illegal unless he is registered with the State and possesses a marijuana card. The police would then need to prove the marijuana was the cause of his actions and not the poor road conditions or distracted driving. Recreational marijuana was passed late last year, but the State is being extremely slow approving marijuana businesses. In fact, most card holders are currently able to find any medicine due to the widespread close down of dispensaries and the small amount of state-approved product.
There were multiple other accident on that same road due to icy conditions and blowing snow. Remember to always wait a few hours after smoking if you have you card and simply don’t drive high if you don’t. It’s not worth it. We will keep you updated!
