Dramatic dash cam video shows a Wyoming Highway Patrol officer narrowly avoiding being struck by a tractor-trailer that ran off the highway in wintery weather conditions.

In a Facebook post Tuesday, Feb. 21, the WHP said:

"One of our WHP Troopers nearly got hit by a commercial semi-tractor and trailer recently. The near miss occurred near Rawlins, Wyoming, on Interstate 80. The tractor and trailer driver could not maintain control of his vehicle and ran off the roadway and into the median.

"Luckily, no law enforcement or first responders lost their lives to this out-of-control vehicle."
