Indiana State Police said that this morning (Monday, April 22, 2019) at approximately 10:37, Master Trooper Ken Miller and Senior Trooper Brenda Tubbs were conducting a traffic stop on I-64 eastbound near the 37 mile-marker when the driver of an eastbound Dodge van failed to move over as required by law and sideswiped one of the patrol cars. The patrol car that was struck was unoccupied at the time of the crash. Both troopers were uninjured.
