DETROIT, Mich. — A 35-year-old Harper Woods police officer, who responded to a one-car accident on I-94 near Eight Mile, pushed two civilians out of harm’s way before he was struck by a car that swerved to miss the wreckage, police said. Advertisement

Around 3:58 p.m. today, the officer was on the shoulder of the expressway after a driver of a pickup lost control and struck the embankment. The six-year veteran of the force then saw a Ford Tempo heading toward two witnesses by him. He pushed them both out of the Tempo’s path before he was hit in the hip and back by the car, police said.
