Police: Texas officers nearly hit by drunk driver
FOREST HILL, Texas (FOX26) —
A driver was arrested for driving drunk after surveillance video shows him almost hit officers helping another driver.
It happened November 16 in Forest Hill, Texas.
Video from an officer's patrol car shows officers on the side of the highway helping a driver whose car broke down. The car was on the shoulder of the road and officers were waiting for a wrecker. That's when you see one officer move over. A split second after, you hear a bang and the driver comes barreling between the cruiser and the officers.
"Please don't drink and drive, folks. People's lives depend on it," the police department wrote on its Facebook page.
