IOWA CITY, IA – It was like a scene out of a movie. A busy highway and a scary chain of events, except this scary accident didn’t happen on the big screen. It happened in Iowa and it was caught on camera.
A sheriff deputy and a state trooper were pulled over on the side of a highway investigating an accident. All seemed to be going routinely when suddenly, out of nowhere, a truck came slamming through.
Authorities say the chain of events started when a semi-truck rear ended a pick-up truck. That sent the pick-up flying toward the deputy and trooper and then down a hill. Despite the scary moments, everyone remained relatively calm.
Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt. A state trooper was taken to the hospital, but just treated for minor injuries. The driver of the semi was cited. Authorities say he failed to slow down when approaching the scene of an accident.
Bet everyone involved is just thankful this close call didn’t end up being their last call.
