An Indiana trooper may consider herself lucky not to have been seriously hurt when a semi side-swiped her squad car on a toll road in LaPorte County.

Trooper Vicki Maxwell was on the side of the highway helping another driver when the semi, which was hauling 19 Mercedes Benzes, took off most of her car door.

Trooper Maxwell was treated and released from LaPorte Hospital. The truck driver was cited.
