A Michigan State Police trooper survived after a semi-truck slammed into a cruiser April 8.

The truck went off the left side off the road onto the median after the crash.

The trooper suffered non-life-threatening injuries, and the truck driver was arrested. 

The fact that the trooper lived was described by police as "nothing short of a miracle."

Police used crash as a reminder that Michigan has a "Move Over" law requiring drivers to move over for emergency vehicles. 

MSP released photos of both the cruiser and the semi truck, which showed severe damage to both vehicles.
