The Hudson Police Department has released dash cam video of an officer’s close call with a squad car.
From the video description:
“The Hudson squad car was rear-ended while an officer was helping a stranded motorist on the Interstate 94 bridge. The crash was reported at 9:24 a.m. Monday on the Hudson Bridge in Washington County.
According to the Minnesota State Patrol, a Hudson police officer was helping with a stalled vehicle that was blocking the left lane of the bridge when a 2012 Ford pickup rear-ended the squad car, causing it to cross all lanes of traffic and crash into the right wall.
The state patrol says the squad’s emergency lights were activated at the time but that no one was inside.
The driver of the pickup was identified as 31-year-old Derik Sands of St. Paul. He had non-life threatening injuries, according to the state patrol.
Please remember to slow down and move over.”
