The incident took place around 1:40 a.m. today on N. Dort Highway near Skateland Arena, said Genesee Township Police Chief Wayne Bates.
It started when Genesee Township
officers were directing traffic letting out from Skateland.A driver of a car apparently getting impatient from waiting to exit Skateland decided to go around traffic by driving in a ditch, Bates
The car then got stuck and a police officer called for a tow truck to have the vehicle impounded when it was learned none of the five occupants of the car had a driver's license, Bates
As a tow truck was pulling the vehicle out of the ditch, another vehicle heading down Dort Highway at a high rate of speed struck the tow truck.
The driver of that vehicle was trapped inside the car for a little while and was taken to an area hospital.The condition of the man is unknown, but his
injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.The driver of the tow truck had minor injuries and was treated at the scene, Bates
said there were two Genesee Township patrol cars on the scene with lights flashing when the car hit the tow truck.
