New York State Police have released shocking bodycam footage that captures the moment a passing driver on the New England Thruway nearly sheared the door off a patrol car as a trooper was exiting his car during a traffic stop in New Rochelle.

As difficult as it is to watch, state police officials said the hair-raising situation could have been much worse.

"This is why you move over!" state police said in a recent social media post. "During a recent traffic stop on I-95 in New Rochelle, Trooper Robert Schaeffer was exiting his patrol vehicle when a passing motorist failed to move over and took the door off his vehicle. Trooper Schaeffer suffered minor injuries and thankfully survived."
