It happened around 4:10 Sunday afternoon on Interstate 80 near exit 420.

Sgt. Storm said around mile marker 413 Jager's car clipped another vehicle. The driver of that car was not hurt.

At mile marker 409, Sgt. Storm said three troopers performed a tactical maneuver that cased Jager's vehicle to hit the median.
