Police officer nearly run over on US highway hard shoulder

A terrifyingly close shave

A POLICE officer in Texas had a very close shave recently, after nearly being run over on the hard shoulder of a US highway.

According to the Irving Police Department, the incident occurred after the cop had pulled over the driver of a different vehicle.

Footage recorded by the officer’s bodycam shows the car speeding towards him on the hard shoulder. Thankfully, the policeman managed to climb over the reservation barrier before the car could collide with him.

Charges won’t be pressed on the driver who very nearly ran over the law enforcement officer, though the Irving Police Department has used the near miss to urge drivers to take aware when they’re driving,
