Ouch! Somebody wasn't paying attention.

I read the article and watched the video several times and it appears as though the Trooper may have been asleep at the wheel. The one thing I cannot figure out is why the trooper was driving with his dash cam turned on since his emergency lights were NOT activated and he wasn't involved in any police actions prior to the crash. I wonder if his dash cam had still been on since his last traffic stop and he was just too tired to have turned it off. The area where this occurred was very rural and very dark with very little traffic. I feel bad for the Trooper but he messed up and he's lucky nobody was killed.

The video recorders in the cruisers are digital and record and purge constantly. If the lights or siren is activated it starts the recording 60 seconds prior, enabling violations or other things, such as this, to be on camera.
