Safety reminder of the day:
When on a highway scene, use your rig to block as much as you feel you need/are allowed.
Keep your head up and pay attention.
This trooper is a brave man. He almost sacrificed his life to protect someone he pulled over on the suspicion of drunken driving. He has back and hip injuries. I sympathize with the back issues. Heal well and quickly Trooper.
Virginia Beach FD
Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?
'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

The article on Officer.com indicates that the trooper was investigating a MVC when the incident occurred, the driver in the original incident was arrested for DUI.

Awesome job to the Trooper. It's a miracle nobody was killed in this incident.If someone with multiple personalities threatens to kill himself, is it considered a hostage situation?

I don't know. I've seen this video a billion times now, and it just looks to me like, while he was yelling for them to watch out, he was moving his own *** away from them. I can't see where he was pulling or pushing them out of the way. In fact, he himself, in his attempt to move out of the way, moves INTO th way.

I watched this video about 20 times. It almost looks like the little white/gray car that enters at 4 seconds (just before the red car) was changing lanes into the red car. Does it look that way to anybody else?
These people are lucky to be alive.
