HUDSON, Wis. (KARE) – A Wisconsin police officer’s dashcam shows a very close call that was completely avoidable.

Authorities say a pickup truck plowed into the back of a Hudson Police squad at highway speeds while it was on the side of the road. Luckily, the police officer was not in the vehicle at the time of impact.

Police officer Hilary Lundberg was assisting a driver with a flat tire on the I-94 bridge Monday morning when the accident occurred. The squad was parked in the left lane when the pickup slammed into the back.

Lundberg’s dashcam video shows her backing away from her squad car, moments before the impact. The Ford Taurus squad flies past her at a high rate of speed, striking a concrete bridge railing just feet from the officer. The squad car then slides across four lanes of traffic before striking another concrete railing on the other side of the bridge.
