St. Louis (KMOX) An Illinois State Trooper was sitting in his squad car-finishing paper work after a DUI arrest-when his vehicle was rear ended by another DUI suspect.

It happened on the shoulder of eastbound I-64 near St Clair Avenue early Saturday morning. The first DUI suspect was in the back seat of the squad car. Both he and the officer were transported to area hospitals with non life threatening injuries.

The 2nd DUI suspect was also sent to the hospital with non life threatening injuries.

Both suspects were later charged with DUI. Names have not been released.
