    Well this won't end well.

    The Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) shared dash cam video of a trooper’s scary close call with a semi as a reminder not to drive distracted.

    The dash cam clip was shared by OSHP on January 8, 2021.

    Meh, I've coughed up scarier things than that. For those who can't view it, it's no biggie, really, the trucker was falling asleep and this trooper was in the left lane and the truck drifted over, sending him into the dirt.

    It worked last night. Don't know what happened. Sorry. But yeah, he ran the guy off into the dirt. 3 seconds later the blue lights came on.

    First off, why is the truck in the middle lane? Hardly any traffic in the right lane. Next, the driver can't keep within his lane. Lastly, big no-no in Ohio to run in the far left lane, so he just kept adding the violations. Maybe needs a "Time Out".
    Wonder what his citation looked like? Were there enough lines to cover them all or did it take two pages?
