- A police officer in an unmarked SUV ran a stop sign before getting struck by a car on Wednesday.

Video surveillance from a neighbor's house shows a Michigan State Police officer in a silver SUV ignoring a stop sign and driving through the intersection.

That's when Carlos Martinez, driving a red car, collided with the side of the SUV, knocking it off the road.

"All he kept saying was 'you hit a cop, you hit a cop, you hit a cop,' and at no moment say 'how are you, are you okay,'" said Maria Martinez, Carlos's mother.

After the two cars collided, the video shows an officer exit the SUV and order Martinez onto the ground.

"The police officer say 'you're 27 years old, you're old enough, you don't need no parents and plus you don't have no rights right now.".

MSP said Thursday morning the driver had been released to a local hospital and has not been charged. »
