Dash cam video shows Ohio trooper hit by SUV during traffic stop

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has released the dash cam footage from an accident involving one of their troopers.

Last Friday, Sgt. Jim Smith was struck by an SUV during a traffic stop around 11 a.m. on U.S. 322 in Geauga County.

The driver hit the patrol car, the trooper and the car the trooper had originally pulled over.

Sgt. Smith was taken to a local hospital in serious condition, but his injuries ended up being minor and he was released from the hospital later that day.

Charges are pending against the driver who struck him.

In the Facebook post, the OSHP also shared a warning about moving over when you see an officer on the side of the road.
