VIDEO: Another sobering reminder about the importance of the ‘Move-Over’ law

The officer was okay, but there’s more to the story.

An officer’s dash cam recently captured footage of a semi truck plowing through the side of his patrol car, reminding us all about the true importance of the ‘move-over’ law. 

The Ohio State Highway Patrol officer was finishing up a traffic stop for a different rig when a semi truck smashed through the side of his patrol car parked on the shoulder. 

In the clip, the rig in question, along with the truck that had just been stopped, can be seen pulling over to the side, presumably to check on the officer. 

Miraculously, the officer was unhurt in the incident. But get this: the rig responsible for the wreck had just been reported to police for reckless operation, and the officer was about to head out on a search for them. Guess he didn’t have to look very far. 

Check out the clip, below. And don’t forget to move over!
