Gate City, VA – Dashcam footage captured the moment when a quick-thinking Gate City police officer likely saved his partner’s life by pulling her out of the path of a reckless driver (video below).
The near-deadly incident occurred on U.S. Highway 23 at approximately 5 p.m. Oct. 3 as Gate City Police Department (GCPD) Officer Matthew Stewart and Officer Jessica McGraw were investigating a crash scene, GCPD Chief Justin Miller said in a press release on Wednesday.
Both officers were standing on the side of the highway near the passenger side of Officer McGraw’s parked patrol SUV when the driver of an oncoming white car lost control, blasted through the median, and slammed into the police vehicle, according to police
Officer Stewart, who was facing the roadway, saw the oncoming collision and grabbed onto Officer McGraw, yanking her away from the patrol SUV at the last possible moment, dashcam footage showed.
The force of the crash sent the police vehicle spinning into the exact spot where the two officers had just been standing.
When the FBI is involved, is anyone ever held accountable?????
