Dashcam video shows Ohio State Trooper dodge truck while helping change tire

An Ohio State Trooper had a close call after his cruiser was struck by a truck on the Ohio Turnpike.

The incident was caught on the officer's dashcam, as he jumps over a guardrail to avoid getting hit.

The trooper was helping change a tire for a disabled vehicle on the side of the road at the time, when a U-Haul truck went off the roadway and crashed into the patrol car.

Ohio State Patrol released the video on Twitter and a warning for drivers to move over for flashing lights.
