This is the horrifying moment an Oklahoma highway patrol officer was sent flying after a vehicle crashed into the car he was pulling over – but the trooper luckily escaped with only minor injuries.

“Hopefully this is my career scare,” Trooper Jesse Gregory said as he showed the fracture on his forearm to a local news crew.

Gregory of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol was talking to a driver during a traffic stop on the highway when the vehicle flew into them at full speed, sending glass and the trooper flying through the air.

The car came up behind them and is seen brutally slamming into the vehicle being pulled over by Gregory on the side of the highway.

Gregory was thrown violently onto the grass as the vehicle he pulled over instantly shattered into pieces on impact. Both vehicles were seriously damaged in the accident.

The Highways Department reported that those involved were ‘treated and released’ after the wild crash. It is unclear whether anyone was cited for the initial stop or the subsequent crash.

Gregory said he doesn’t even remember the incident.

The trooper told News9 “When I watch the video, I don’t even remember the barrel rolling onto my feet.”

“When it threw me out of the vehicle, I think that really just took most of the hit, most of the damage,” he said of the injury.

Gregory was involved in a separate incident in another traffic stop just last month.

The incident, also caught on a dash cam, showed a car ramming into a vehicle that had been pulled over for a traffic stop.

In that incident, the officer – who was a neighbor of Gregory’s – was launched into the air. Gregory, who was nearby, shouted “Hey are you ok bro?”

“He was hit in the exact same situation,” Gregory explained.

The trooper said it’s alarming and crazy “when something like this happens to two law enforcement officers within the same month.”
