VIDEO: Suspect Drives SUV Straight Into Oklahoma Officer

Dramatic video showing a suspect driving a vehicle directly into a police officer as the cop fires his gun has an Oklahoma police department touting the benefits of officer body cameras, reports NBC News.

Master Patrol Officer Matt Stacy suffered cuts but wasn't hurt seriously after Stacy Ann Bunsey, 41, drove a stolen Infinity SUV straight toward the officer and his patrol car on Friday, according to an arrest report.

The officer was responding to a report of a stolen SUV from a car dealership when Bunsey led him on a chase that culminated near Northwoods Fine Arts Academy, seven miles west of Tulsa, according to the Sand Springs (OK) Police Department.

When the officer stopped his car and ordered Bunsey to do the same, she turned the SUV around and accelerated before she "deliberately struck" his patrol vehicle. As Bunsey was driving toward Stacy, he fired two shots in her direction, police said.

"I exited my patrol car with the intent to stop her with my spike system. It soon became apparent that I was not going to have time to do this, and that she intended on trying to hurt or kill me," the officer said in a statement Tuesday. "I responded in the way my training and instincts led me," he said.

The officer's bullets didn't hit Bunsey, according to police. She was arrested on multiple charges.
