Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper's close call with erratic driver

OKHP erratic driver

The Oklahoma Highway Patrol is showing just how dangerous the highways can be for its' troopers.  Video released on the department's Facebook page Sunday shows a trooper stopped on the side of I-35 last Friday in Carter County.  That's when a SUV swerved to miss the car in front of them before nearly hitting the parked cruiser.  OHP officials say the SUV sped off and troopers were unable to catch up with that driver.  Police say while that trooper is alright, it's a reminder to drivers to be cautious and slow down.  OHP officials say the safety of its troopers largely depends on individual drivers.
