It's a reminder to all of us about the importance of moving over and slowing down when we see squad cars at the scene of a crash or traffic stop.
Dash cam video posted on the Wisconsin Rapids Police Department's Facebook page shows an officer scrambling to get out of the way of a fast approaching truck that lost control.
The incident happened Saturday when the officer was called to a one vehicle crash. The video shows the officer had turned on the emergency lights on the squad.
Once he notices the truck coming toward him he scrambles to get out of the way of it. Luckily, the driver recovered just in time.
