A Texas police department released dash cam video of a small SUV hitting a car being loaded onto a tow truck to vividly illustrate the need for drivers to move or slow down when emergency vehicles are in the area.
A police officer got out of the way in the nick of time, the video shows. No one was hurt, according to Fox29 television station.
The police department wrote in a post about the video: "The law states a driver must either vacate the lane closest to the stopped emergency vehicle if the road has multiple lanes traveling in the same direction OR slow down 20 mph below the speed limit."
