Trooper Chad Wolf was killed when his police motorcycle was struck by a vehicle.

Trooper Wolf was on motorcycle patrol and traveling northbound in the right lane of Dixie Highway, crossing over southbound I-75, when a vehicle towing an empty trailer traveling in the left lane quickly changed lanes in an attempt to access the I-75 entrance ramp. As the vehicle changed lanes, it struck Trooper Wolf's motorcycle. Trooper Wolf was dragged for four miles on I-75 before the driver pulled over at a rest area.

The driver who struck Trooper Wolf cooperated with the investigation and was subsequently charged with reckless driving causing death and leaving the scene of an accident causing death. In May 31st, 2017, the driver was acquitted of all charges.

Trooper Wolf served with the Michigan State Police for seven years. He is survived by his wife, four children, parents, and three siblings.

I had the fortunate please to meet you a few weeks before your passing. I was on I-75 when I saw you running laser on the side of the freeway, when you stowed the laser into the saddlebags and started to catch up said dammit to my wife, he's coming to get me. So as only a cop would do, I pulled over into the rest stop and awaited you. With a big grin you approached the vehicle and asked, "sooooooo what department do you work for, cause only a cop would pull over like that?!"

I'm very glad I had the pleasure of meeting you and chatting for a few minutes. It was obvious you have great pride in being an MSP trooper. Thank you for your sacrifice. Its hard watching the court proceedings without getting choked up and thinking we lost a great man and trooper.

God Speed Trooper Wolf, you will not be forgotten.
