EAST ST. LOUIS (KSDK) – An Illinois State Trooper and two DUI suspects have minor injuries after an accident on Interstate 64 near mile marker three.

It happened at 3:33 a.m. Saturday. The trooper had just made a DUI arrest after a two-car crash, and was filling out paperwork while the arrestee sat in the backseat of his squad car.

Another vehicle then rear-ended the squad car. The State Trooper was able to climb out to safety, and a witness helped the trooper pull the arrestee from the vehicle.

Both suspects have been charged with D.U.I. The squad car was towed from the scene due to damage.
