A Wyoming Highway Patrol state trooper and Lincoln County Sheriff’s deputy ran for cover as a passing car lost control on black ice yesterday.

In a dramatic dashcam video posted on the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Facebook page, a car can be seen heading towards a curve before spinning out of control and narrowly missing a group of vehicles stopped on the other side of the road.

The driver of the car was able to gain enough control to slow and turn away from the parked cars just in time to avoid a collision.

The sheriff’s office posted the video to remind drivers to be aware of road conditions and slow down when emergency vehicles are nearby.
