    Hmmm , doubtful anything will come of this...but if it was the other way around, truck hitting the cop, he would already be in cuffs

    True. But in his case there were THREE things that could have happened. 1) the cop stops to give him a roadside and check his papers. 2) cop stops and offers him nothing other then friendly help. Calls Local Tow company, mechanic, or something like that. 3) cop doesn’t stop but safely rolls on by WITHOUT hitting anyone.
    Never would of thought #4 was an option.
