It’s a rare glimpse of an even rarer occurrence.

The incident occurred while the officer was directing traffic at a construction site along Zapata Highway.
The video shows the officer reacting to a speeding motorist heading his way; the video suddenly ends when the squad car is hit from behind.
Officials with the department say that while these instances are rare, it is an example of why motorists need to exercise caution when behind the wheel.
