With frigid and dangerous weather conditions impacting much of the U.S., police in Hurst, Texas, recently issued a warning to motorists.
A Facebook post featured dashboard camera footage of an officer during a roadside stop in a close call with an out-of-control vehicle.
As he attempted to move out of the expected path of the skidding car, he fell on the icy surface and was inches from being struck.
“An example of why we highly discourage traveling in the current weather conditions,” the agency wrote. “The roads are extremely dangerous.”
The officer reportedly avoided serious injury.
