VIDEO: New Jersey Troopers' Cruiser Sideswiped by Jeep at Traffic Stop

Officials are searching for a driver who sideswiped a New Jersey state police vehicle as troopers conducted a traffic stop.

The close call was captured on dashcam video back on October 11 around 10:30 p.m. Two New Jersey state troopers from the Hamilton station pulled over a car for a minor traffic violation along I-95 in Upper Freehold Township. As the troopers stood on the passenger side, a speeding vehicle suddenly clipped the stopped car as well as the state police cruiser.

No one was hurt during the incident, NBCPhiladelphia.com reports.

“It was a very close call,” said New Jersey State Police Sergeant Jeff Flynn. “If the trooper was getting out of his vehicle and that vehicle had struck at that time, it would have been a tragedy.”

According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, 136 officers have been struck and killed by vehicles across the country over the past decade.
