This Texas officer’s situational awareness was on point Friday night.
On Friday, a Bridgeport Texas Police officer had quite the scare. Cpl. Taylor, the officer in the video below, was conducting a simple night time traffic stop. If you look closely in the video, you can see a vehicle make a very wide right turn into oncoming traffic towards the officer.
As Cpl. Taylor is talking with the driver, he looks up just in time to see the car coming right at him. He runs to the rear of the vehicle, narrowly avoiding the car travelling in the wrong lane. He tosses the information back to the driver and pursues the vehicle that almost killed him.
The person who nearly hit Cpl. Taylor was charged with several offenses including, you’d never guess, driving under the influence.
