Video: Trooper Almost hit by Semi
North Carolina Highway Patrol released a video of Trooper A.G. Knight from August 7th almost getting killed when a semi hit the brakes and skidded into the left lane.
Knight was pulled off US 64 in Wake County for a traffic stop, as the semi came by.
The truck was behind another semi and then appeared to skid to avoid a wreck. North Carolina's "Move Over" law requires drivers to move to the left lane when an officer is pulled over on the right side of the highway.
But many drivers including the two tractor trailers seen in the video ignore the law and stay in the same lane.
Highway Patrol released the video of Trooper Knight in hopes of reminding North Carolina drivers the dangers for themselves as well as officers when they don't merge away from a road side stop.
Fortunately, Knight moved away from the accident running away from the highway where he had made the traffic stop.
