Skidding Vehicle Barely Misses Wyoming Highway Patrol Trooper

The Wyoming Highway Patrol reminded motorists to slow down during stormy winter weather as they released a dramatic video showing a trooper diving to escape an SUV careering off a roadway.

Footage filmed by the Wyoming Highway Patrol at the scene of a crash on Interstate 80 on January 4 shows a vehicle narrowly avoiding an officer as it sails off the highway, which was closed in several areas due to deteriorating road conditions, they wrote in a caption.

Strong winds and blowing snow were forecast to continue across southeast Wyoming on Thursday, January 6, and create possible near-blizzard conditions across roadways, the National Weather Service warned. Credit: Wyoming Highway Patrol via Storyful
