As troopers were responding to these crashes with a news crew from KCBD on scene filming, an eastbound semi truck driver reportedly lost control after an SUV driver changed lanes in front of him and struck him.

The truck was caught on camera by the KCBD news crew as it slid and came to a stop within feet of the camera.

According to reports, the sliding semi truck struck a trooper and another vehicle, leaving a person trapped inside. Both the trooper and the person who was trapped were taken to the hospital but are expected to survive.
