Dash cam video has been released of an officer who was forced to jump off a bridge as his patrol car came barreling toward him.
Officer Kenneth Lewis and his partner had made a traffic stop Friday when the incident occurred. As the officers were speaking to the driver about the traffic stop, Officer Lewis noticed his patrol vehicle moving forward.
46-year-old school teacher Christie Biggers, who was driving drunk, rammed her vehicle into the officers’ cruiser, forcing it forward.
Officer Lewis says he had no choice but to leap 30 feet off of the bridge onto the rocks below. Lewis suffered a ruptured aorta. He is currently listed as stable and in recovery. The other officer was unharmed.
Biggers has been charged with intoxication assault.
