Michigan State Police troopers responded to a report of a driver driving the wrong way on I-75 on Sunday at 12:50 a.m.
Several calls were made to the police regarding a vehicle driving southbound on I-75 on the northbound lanes.
The vehicle was located near mile marker 216 in Ogemaw County, where deputies from the Ogemaw County Sheriff's Department also responded to the freeway in search of the vehicle.
The deputies positioned their patrol car on northbound I-75 in an attempt to stop the wrong way driver. The patrol car was struck by another vehicle traveling northbound. The wrong way driver passed by the collision and continued driving southbound in the northbound lanes, police said.
The wrong way vehicle was then stopped near mile marker 215 by troopers and the driver was placed under arrest for operating while intoxicated.
Two Ogemaw County Sheriff's deputies were transported by ambulance to the West Branch Regional Medical Center following the collision. They were both treated for minor injuries.
A 22-year-old Gaylord woman, the driver of the second vehicle, and a 27-year-old Gaylord man, a passenger in the vehicle, were also transported to the hospital for minor injuries.
The driver of the vehicle traveling southbound was a 58-year-old male from Waterford, police said.
The investigation is still ongoing.
