I have never seen more police cars in my life. Between M15 and Dixie I saw at least 70 cars and multiple helicopters.

:rumor warning:

I don't know that any of this is accurate. But, I heard the accident occured on dixie, an older gentleman towing a travel trailer merged and hit the officer who then got hung up on the trailer, older gentleman got on i75 north and was stopped at the rest area just north of davisburg rd.

Officer is currently in critical condition.

I surely feel for the older gentleman who made a mistake, and I surely feel for the officer and his family. I hope he is able to pull through.

Turns out he is the neighbor of a girl I went to high school with. That means nothing of my knowledge of the accident.

I can't tell if the officer had someone pulled over, or was just an innocent motorcyclist who wasn't seen in the drivers blindspot.

That intersection sucks pretty bad.

This officer is the husband of my ex's favorite high school teacher. They're a really nice family. This doesn't change anything about what happened, but bad things can happen to good people. My thoughts and condolences go out to everyone involved.

I can understand if the guy didn't see him pulling a travel trailer, lots of blind spots. What I don't understand is how the cop can be dragged for 2.5 miles without anyone trying to stop the driver that hit him! How is that possible?

From what they showed on the news this morning, it was just a little flatbed trailer behind a crossover of some kind.

A MSP officer ran over one of my best friends and dragged him under his patrol car. The officer didn't know he had hit or run over, or dragged him. It is what is called "an accident". The officer didn't go to jail nor did my friend die. He is definitely lucky to be alive though. I do not consider either of them idiots.

Judge, jury, and executioner all based off of media reports and the Internet. We need less people with this attitude.
