A Wisconsin State Patrol trooper was hit by a car on Interstate 94 while responding to an unrelated crash in Dunn County Thursday night. 

The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office said the incident happened just before 10 p.m. on I-94 near mile marker 33 in the Lucas Township, located in the western part of the state. 

The trooper was struck by a passing car while standing alongside a pickup truck on the right shoulder of the freeway. The pickup truck with two men inside was also hit, but the men were uninjured. 

The trooper was transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The three people in the passing vehicle were not injured in the crash, according to law enforcement.
