State Trooper Nearly Crushed On Icy Road

Posted: Updated:

It was a close call for one Indiana State Trooper driving on an icy road. He nearly got crushed by a semi -- and it's all caught on camera!

A dash cam was rolling when a car and 2 semi-'s slid-off I-69 onto the median barely missing an Indiana State Trooper.

Chuck Meyer had gotten out of his car Saturday afternoon when it was snowing, because he was trying to help a woman who had slid off the road when 3.cars did the same thing and could have hit them.

"That was terrifying. that's probably the scariest thing I've ever experienced," Meyer said. "I thought to myself this is not good, this is not a good spot to be in"

The car and 2 semis went in between the woman's car and the troopers Dodge Charger.

"I was like it kind of looks like he's slowing down but I'm not sure and something told me to just run. So I took off running again and went over the cable barrier," Meyers said.

Trooper Meyer jumped over the cable barrier twice to avoid getting hit, but the 2nd semi didn't spare his car. It scrapped the left side of it, smashing the back window and bending his car door.

"After he went by I saw my car had been hit and pushed to the other side of the road way," Meyers said.

Trooper Meyer is thankful no one was seriously injured.

"Me personally I think the thing that scares me the most is getting hit by a vehicle b/c to me it's something I have no control over, "Meyer said.

But what people do have control over is how they drive -especially when it's snowing and raining. He wants to make sure people are extremely careful.

"You still need to reduce your speed, give yourself, time to break don't rude up on top of people," Meyers said.

And if you see someone stranded on the side of the road. The best thing you can do is call for help.
