An Oregon State Police trooper walked away from a near head-on crash on Highway 97 Tuesday morning.

As the trooper drove north of Klamath Falls around 1 a.m., an oncoming mini van crossed into his lane, police said.

The trooper steered to the right and into the guardrail, but couldn't avoid a crash, KVAL TV reports.

"Miraculously, Trooper Nork walked away from the crash with no injuries," Oregon State Police said in a statement. "The other driver only received minor injuries."
