Video shows car slide off road, slam into Ohio State Highway Patrol cruiser
The Ohio State Highway Patrol is reminding drivers to travel safely during winter weather.
OSP said last winter, there were 12,939 crashes due to snow, ice or slush-covered roads.
This winter, OSP said a trooper on the Batavia Post's cruiser was hit in Williamsburg.
OSP shared a cruiser camera video of the incident that happened on Jan. 13. The footage shows the trooper pulling over to check on a vehicle that was stuck off the side of the road. While the trooper was checking the vehicle, a second vehicle appeared to slide off the road and slam into the trooper's cruiser, narrowly missing the trooper and the vehicle he was checking on.
Minor injuries were reported in the crash.
OSP is reminding drivers to prepare their vehicles and use caution on the roads, as they can quickly change with the weather.
