INDIANA — An Indiana State Police trooper was injured this morning when a suspected drunken driver crashed into the back of his patrol car on I-465 on the Southside.

Trooper Mike Eland was investigating a crash involving an intoxicated driver on westbound I-465 near the I-65 exit when a vehicle driven by another suspected drunken driver crashed into the back of his squad car at about 3:40 a.m., Cpl. Jeff Simmons said.

Eland, who was sitting inside the squad car, suffered a concussion and was transported to St. Francis Hospital and later released, Simmons said.

Eland, who has been on the department for nine months, was parked behind a tow truck with his emergency lights running at the time of the crash, Simmons said.

The other drivers involved were arrested, Simmons said. Their names were not immediately available.
