  1. He got slammed, still managed to walk it off, and even prioritized his concerns to the driver instead of himself. What a crazy situation to be in, Im glad the cop made sure everyone got help.

    1. โ€‹@Alexander Rose The officer didn’t force the driver to stay there. They had a split second to start their car, put it in drive, and get out of the way. Not a chance they were clearing that car

    2. @Milwaukee Brewers – You must be having a dream of another video where the officer wasnโ€™t hit. If you rewatch this one – if you did at all – it clearly shows this officer being hit by the car. Da put your glasses on. LMAO

    3. Dude literally went towards the crash when he just had to turn around and hop the barrier ๐Ÿ˜‚

    4. He wasnโ€™t hit directly, his right arm landed on the hood as the front right end of the car had maneuvered in front of him while he was running. As he landed on the hood, the bottom of the bumper swiped the side of his leg, the momentum then did the rest. The officer was extremely lucky. A direct hit and he wouldnโ€™t be standing. Not to under mind the officer (great work responding to the occupant of the parked vehicle), but please remember to go the opposite direction of a crashing vehicle (years of side pain taught me that lesson the hard way).

  2. Bro a real one he first responded was to the injured not himself even tho he took a mean hit โค๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

    1. If you play it back in slowmo, the car didnโ€™t hit him directly. He landed on it. That said, ๐Ÿ’ฏ glad he took care of the driver first

    1. @Eva Silva Layton he’s always present, you don’t have permission from GOD to know it! And he doesn’t need your permission to do anything else! He works through people as well, so dies the devil

    2. @Eva Silva Layton Ask the officer if GOD was present “for him” ๐Ÿ˜‰ I bet you hear differently! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™

  3. Good thing he saw that car coming at him ahead of time meaning a difference of life & his own funeral.

  4. This happened on the Fairfax County Parkway in Fairfax ,VA. The driver of the M3 BMW was 17 years old and was doing an estimated 120 mph.

    1. It looked like he was trying to drift and lost it. Iโ€™m sure it shows it before the part of the clip we can see.

    2. Thatโ€™s why you are not allowed to drive in Europe till the age of 18- evidence based practice ๐Ÿ˜‚

    3. โ€‹@rb70383 he probably saw the cop after he started the drift and let off the gas mid-drift… smh

  5. That is one of the craziest dash cam vids Iโ€™ve ever seen. How he kept calm and prioritized the injured is amazing. This man is a saint!

    1. Dude literally went towards the crash when he just had to turn around and hop the barrier ๐Ÿ˜‚

    2. WOWโ€ผ๏ธ God was on his side when it isnโ€™t your time it isnโ€™t your timeโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ฏ

  6. That bullet proof vest ๐Ÿฆบ saved his ribs from breaking mad respect to him for worrying about civilians before himself it wasn’t your time brother God has plans for you โค๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜‡

  7. Wow he walked that shock off quick then got to the driver. Forget he is a cop, hell of a human being here
