Driver skids on black ice, nearly hits deputy, and keeps on going
LINCOLN COUNTY, Wyo. (STORYFUL) - A Lincoln County sheriff’s deputy had a close call during a traffic stop when the driver of a passing car hit some black ice and spun out of control.
Dashcam footage shared by the sheriff’s office on Oct. 11 shows a car skidding on black ice and spinning towards the deputy, who’s standing alongside his patrol car.
The clip shows the deputy and a number of people involved in the traffic stop jumping out of the way. The driver of the vehicle fails to stop.
“This was a close call involving one of our LCSO deputies, a WHP officer, and several others. With temperatures dropping below freezing, remember that roads may be slick,” the sheriff’s office said on Facebook.
