In a chilling video, shared by the Nebraska State Patrol on Monday, a car can be seen skewing out of control on a frosty road before flipping over into a ditch. The striking moment was captured on a dashboard camera of a police patrol car that was right behind the vehicle when the incident occurred. Nebraska State Patrol confirmed that the two occupants were uninjured in the accident because they were wearing seatbelts.

The incident was captured in the dashboard camera of Trooper Poppe's patrol vehicle, who immediately stopped his car and was seen rushing to the rescue of flipped vehicle occupants. Nebraska State Patrol shared the video urging everyone to wear seatbelts, saying "even a small of frost can cause problems on the roadway".

The video has garnered more than 7,000 views on Twitter since being shared on January 11. Netizens have filled the comment section of the post with incidents they have personally witnessed on frosty roads in Nebraska, which become difficult to drive on normal wheels in the winters, as they reminded everyone to wear seatbelts and not use cruise control. One user claimed to have met Trooper Poppe before and described him as a "great man".
Was very frosty this morning and witnessing 1 roll over in a week is more than enough for me— Jason leetch (@jasonleetch) January 11, 2021
A good time to remind everyone to NOT use your cruise control in these conditions. And wear your seatbelt.— Milnerthx138 (@Husker5time) January 12, 2021
J. Poppe is a great man! I had the pleasure of meeting him roadside one day, might’ve been going a bit too fast :). Glad everyone walked away!— Curtis Walker (@cwalker_wx) January 12, 2021
Use caution on the roads this morning people, moisture overnight has settled on some streets and has created some black ice. https://t.co/uVlTWkqlk3— Kevin M. 🇺🇸 (@KevLRNE) January 12, 2021

Earlier, a video went viral showing a group of people pulling a truck out of a gorge that had met with an accident. The incident occurred in Nagaland, where villagers gathered to pull a truck out of a gorge by attaching several ropes to it and using their own hum strength only.
In a village in Nagaland (not yet identified) the entire community pulls up a truck which fell off the road with ropes & the spirit of unity!— Mmhonlumo Kikon (@MmhonlumoKikon) January 10, 2021
