Watch A Cop Get Hit By A Tree During Routine Traffic Stop [Video]

A dashboard camera captured the moment a Iowa police officer almost died when a large oak tree randomly cracked and slammed directly into an SUV he was ticketing.

Jeremy Veach was talking to the driver, who had neglected to put her headlights on, when a 30-foot tree cracked and fell on the car while slamming the cop to the ground last week. Centreville’s police chief said there was no wind in the area that night and the owners of the tree said they had no idea it had rotted because it “appeared healthy” and continued to sprout green leaves each season.

Both the cop and driver walked away with only scratches. No one involved is quite sure why the tree fell when it did. Watch the video below.
