Michigan Trooper and Suspect Survive Terrifying Fall of a Bridge

Michigan Trooper and a fleeing suspect both survived a terrifying fall of a bridge.

Dashcam video has been released showing an incident in which a Michigan State Police trooper and a suspect fell from a highway overpass.

The trooper was chasing after the suspect who fled on foot from a vehicle following a pursuit the night of Nov. 1 in Saginaw County.

“When the trooper grabbed him, they both went over the ledge, landing approximately 25 to 35 feet below.”
