DASH CAM VIDEO: Officer OK after getting hit during traffic stop

Posted: Updated:

A Texas officer is recovering after getting hit by a car in the middle of a traffic stop.

Dash camera video shows the officer standing by the car he pulled over, and then a car comes speeding by, hitting him.

The officer flips into the air and lands on the road. Incredibly, he was able to get up and arrest the driver who hit him.

"Next thing I knew is I was flying through the air. It felt like I was spinning through a washing machine... From all my training, whether it be from the Marine Corps, or through the academy, the worst thing to do is be down and out of a fight."

The officer is expected to recover.
