SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

New police cruiser dashcam video has been released showing a chase that sent a Michigan State Police trooper and the person he was pursuing to the hospital.

State police tell WNEM TV5 the trooper tried to pull over a vehicle driven by a 41-year-old Standish man on I-675 near Kochville Road in Saginaw County, but the suspect continued to drive.

Police disabled his vehicle with "stop sticks" and that's when they said the suspect took off on foot and climbed over a guardrail.

The trooper grabbed a hold of the suspect just as he was going over the guardrail and then they both fell 35 feet.

The trooper was released from the hospital last week. Authorities later issued a statement that the trooper continues to recover from his injuries and will be off duty for three to six months.

Authorities said the suspect is a 41-year-old Standish man who was on a tether stemming from alcohol-related charges in Bay County.
