MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Police say an East Lansing officer had no serious injuries after being pinned between a patrol car and a recreational vehicle in a parking lot.

Detective Lt. Scott Wriggelsworth tells The Associated Press the man was among a group of patrol officers gathered in the lot in Ingham County’s Meridian Township, near East Lansing, who had helped escort participants in the Law Enforcement Torch Run through the area.

Wriggelsworth says the 34-year-old officer was walking to the car about 1:20 a.m. Friday to move it so the RV could leave when the RV pinned him. The driver stopped and Wriggelsworth says a group of police academy cadets lifted the car away from the officer, freeing him.

The officer is home after being taken to a hospital.

The torch run supports Special Olympics Michigan.


This story has been corrected to show the location where the officer was pinned was in Meridian Township, not East Lansing.
