Cop was helping a motorist when a car hit a patch of ice. What happened next scared the hell out of him.


Everyday, police officers help out stranded motorists. But it's not every day that they come within inches of getting hit.

But that's what happened to a police officer in Hurst, Texas. He was helping a stranded motorist when a car hit a patch of ice. The officer, Jonathan Cramer, saw the car coming -- and slipped on the ice himself. The car then crashed into the back of the strandard motorists vehicle.

"I was trying to get out of the way as fast as I could," Cramer told WFAA-TV. "It was pretty close, I'd say a couple feet. From my hand to the tire, less than that."

The police department released the video on its Facebook page, and it quickly received more than 600,000 page views.
