An officer who was injured after a semi slammed into his cruiser on I-75 is now out of the hospital.

Police said Benjamin Fielder was helping a stranded driver Friday night when a tractor trailer crashed into his patrol car, as well as the other driver's vehicle.

The truck overturned, spilling sodium hydro sulfide onto part of the roadway.

Northbound I-75 was shut down for hours around the 113 mile marker following the collision. It reopened around 7 Saturday morning.
