A scary incident was caught on the dashcam when a woman and two police officers had a narrow escape after a truck lost control and crashed on an icy road in Illinois. According to the reports, two police officers were helping a woman change her punctured car tire on the side of a road in Southern Illinois when suddenly a truck skidded on the icy road and overturned, moving with full force towards the three people on the side of the road.
The woman and the officers helping her change the flat tire ran into a ditch in the nick of time as the truck barrelled over the woman, narrowly missing her. According to a local media outlet, the woman suffered minor injuries and was taken to a nearby hospital to receive the necessary treatment. However, the state troopers did not sustain any injury.
In a similar incident, a couple pushing their baby in a pram at a busy intersection in Arizona were saved by a whisker as a speeding car came towards them after jumping a red light. The family of three was saved when another vehicle crashed into the speeding car, stopping it and giving the couple to run along with their baby.
A video released by the Phoenix police department in Arizona released a video that showed the speeding car being driven by a drunk man jumping the red light, almost hitting the family. The video then showed a Chevrolet Cruze ramming into the Jeep, ultimately saving the family.
According to the concerned officials, the drunk man identified as 28-year-old Ernesto Otanez Oveso was taken into custody based on charges based on DUI and aggravated assault. However, Oveso's co-passenger, an unidentified woman, managed to run off in order to escape the authorities.
In another Facebook post, the Phoenix police department thanked the driver of the Chevrolet Cruze for ramming into the Jeep and saving the family's life.
