Police in Ohio say a driver intentionally slammed her SUV into a police cruiser earlier this month because she wanted to die.
Body cam video of the incident was just released by the Norton Police Dept.
It shows the terrifying scene as the woman barrels into Norton police officer Ryan Connell as he’s writing a ticket inside his cruiser.
The woman slammed into the patrol car’s driver side and also struck another vehicle belonging to the person Connell was arresting at the time, along I-76.
A fellow officer witnessed the whole thing around 3:30 am on Dec 10 in the westbound shoulder of the interstate, News 5 reported.
The female driver was apparently suicidal and taken to a local facility to be evaluated. She’s facing a long list of charges, police say.
Connell says he’s lucky to be alive. “I had a guardian angel with me at the time,” he told the local station.
Amazingly Connell was not seriously injured in the wreck and neither was the man sitting in his back seat at the time. That man’s SUV was totaled.
