If anything other than a little Toyota would’ve slammed into the back of Senior Trooper Don White’s squad car on the interstate Thursday afternoon, the 13-year Indiana State Police veteran said he might not have been back in uniform for a while.
Instead, White says he feels fortunate that he only suffered minor injuries in the collision. He was treated for pain to his neck and lower back and released Thursday evening from Ball Memorial Hospital, returning to his shift Friday morning.
“I can tell you 100 percent that if it were a larger vehicle that had hit me, it may very well have been a worse scenario,” White said. “I pretty much dodged a bullet.”
