MIDDLETON, Wis. — Police in Wisconsin released dashcam video Monday of a startling crash that left two employees injured.
The video shared on Facebook shows a wrong-way driver crashing head-on into a patrol car. In the video, the officer flips on the siren just before the crash -- but it’s too late.
One of the cruiser’s occupants is heard asking, “Are you OK?” and the other occupant says, “Yes.”
According to Middleton Police, an 11-year veteran patrol officer and an 8-year veteran dispatcher were treated for minor injuries. The driver was arrested for operating while intoxicated.
