MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A trooper, stranded motorist and others assisting the motorist were unharmed after a vehicle slammed into the back of the trooper's patrol vehicle early Sunday morning.

Corporal Brandon Fortenberry, with MHP, says the incident happened at 1:11 a.m. Sunday on I-55 north in Madison. He said the driver of the Infinity sustained no injuries, was taken to jail and charged with DUI.

Fortenberry said the trooper and other motorists were on the scene assisting a stranded motorist in a Chevrolet Impala when an Infinity, traveling north on I55, collided with the rear of the trooper's patrol vehicle.

The impact of the Infinity, into the back of the trooper's vehicle, caused a chain reaction with the other two motorists' vehicles.

 All, but the Impala, were affected by the collision.

Two passengers, who were in the Infinity, were transported to Merit Health in Canton with minor injuries.

No other injuries occurred and the accident is still under investigation.
