Police officer almost mowed down in routine traffic stopjuin 30, 2020
Heart-stopping footage has captured the moment a police officer jumps for his life, after almost being hit during a traffic stop in Sydney’s west.
Footage from inside the cabin of one of the trucks involved in the crash, shows the driver travelling in the kerbside lane as a large white truck comes hurtling towards the rear, as a horn sounds in the background.
The truck then hits it, ramming it into another one in front before it smashes into the police car as the officer jumps out of the way.
The police officer, aged in his 40s, was among six men injured in the crash.
The other five men were taken to several hospitals nearby for treatment.
NSW Police Highway and Traffic Command officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
