Minnesota State Trooper Nearly Hit Directing Traffic
Not too long ago, we shared a video with you of a student who was nearly hit by a semi-truck while waiting for her bus.
Now, there's been another near-miss caught on camera. This time, a Minnesota State Patrol officer has to be quick on his feet to avoid getting hit by a car. It happened up in the Twin Cities Monday morning.
The state trooper was directing traffic on Highway 169 in Shakopee, while work was being done on an earlier accident. Evidently, somebody wasn't paying close enough attention to the road, swerved to avoid a car that had nearly stopped in front of them, and found themselves heading directly for the Patrol officer.
Fortunately, the officer was able to get out of the way. But the speeding car clipped the car that had been in front of it, causing another accident.
