VIDEO: Ohio Officer Risks Life to Save Man From a Busy Freeway

A North Olmsted (Ohio) Police officer is being called a hero for running onto I-480 and dragging a drunk driver to safety, reports WKYC-TV.

The dash cam video starts off like a typical traffic stop. But then the driver, 54-year-old Richard Solis, gets out of his car and darts into traffic.

"Get back in the car, get back in the car," shouts Patrolman Matt Beck.

He gets out of his police cruiser and runs after Solis. They disappear out of frame. And then Patrolman Beck tries to pull Solis out of harms way.

"Kill me. Kill me," yells out Solis.

He falls to the ground, still in the middle of the interstate. Patrolman Beck drags Solis' 340 pound body across three lanes of traffic.

Solis was taken into custody with no injuries.
