Wisconsin deputy nearly hit by vehicle after driver loses control during winter storm

As another storm brings wintry weather to the Midwest on Wednesday, a police department in Wisconsin is using a video of a shocking close-call to remind motorists to slow down.

The Fond du Lac County Sheriff's Office posted a video on Facebook of an incident from a recent snowstorm in which a deputy was nearly struck by an out-of-control vehicle.

Deputy Jason Fabry was assisting a motorist who had slid into a ditch and was walking back to the highway when an oncoming driver slid out of control and nearly struck him.

"This spinout could have been deadly for Deputy Fabry, or for [the people traveling in] an oncoming vehicle," the sheriff's office said Tuesday. "Thankfully, no one was struck or injured, but this video serves as a great example of people driving too fast for conditions and putting the life of a deputy at great risk."
