Driver slams into police car in northern suburb: VIDEO
A driver slammed into a Gurnee, IL police department squad car, and it was all caught on camera.

GURNEE, Ill. (WLS) -- There were some close calls for police officers during traffic stops in Gurnee over the past couple of days.

One video is a good reminder for drivers to move over for first responders.

Police bodycam video captured the moment a driver slammed into an officer's squad car. He got out of the way, and wasn't hurt.

In another crash, a small SUV caught fire.

In both crashes, neither of the officers was hurt.

Scott's Law requires Illinois drivers to move over for an emergency vehicle with lights activated.
