(WLNS) - Michigan State Police say drivers traveling too fast for road conditions lead to two separate accidents Monday night, involving a trooper and deputy.

According to state police in Brighton, Trooper James Gilmer was helping a driver on the southbound lanes of US-23 south of Hyne Road on Monday night. A 27 year-old-man lost control of his car and slammed into the back of the patrol car.

Trooper Gilmer was taken to the hospital, and has since been released.

Less than a half an hour after later police say Livingston County Deputy Kendall Kretzchmer was involved in a crash with another vehicle.

This one happened on Old US-23 at Grand River Avenue.

According to officials, a 94-year-old man made a left hand turn in front of the deputy who couldn't stop in time.

Deputy Kretzchmer was taken to the hospital, but is expected to survive.
