Dashcam Video Shows Florida Trooper Hit By Car

** (Disclaimer: This video content is intended for educational and informational purposes only) **
January is “Move Over Month.” It’s a time to remind everyone of the state law aimed at protecting law enforcement and others whose roadway jobs put their safety at risk.

To illustrate those dangers, the Florida Highway Patrol released dashcam video of a dramatic crash from October 2015.

In the video, Trooper Mac Mickens was on the Florida Turnpike in West Palm Beach. He was walking back to his vehicle, after having pulled over a driver for speeding, when another driver plows right into him.

Mickens, 60, struggles to get up. His pelvis was completely shattered, his face bloodied.

Finally Trooper Mickens is able to grab hold of his radio to call for help – no small feat

Thankfully, Mickens is recovering and is hoping to be back at work soon.

But not all emergency workers and first responders are as lucky.

The move over law requires drivers to move over a lane or to slow down to 20 mph below the speed limit.

If a driver is not in the lane closest to the stopped emergency vehicles, they’re required to allow other drivers who are to move into their lane.

This goes for law enforcement vehicles, tow trucks, sanitation and utility workers to prevent scenes like this from happening on Florida’s roadways.

Drivers who violate the move over law can be issued a ticket and fine and get three points on their license.

  1. What the fuck is up with people just somehow accidentally losing control in the worst possible ways at the worst possible Time when there are cops around?! It honestly pisses me off how many people somehow just crash into cops when they’re doing traffic stops.

  2. Wow! Just staring and walked away on the phone while this injured man suffers! Unreal! Inhumane!!
    I'm glad the LEO survived.
    God bless our Leos !!
    Merry Christmas!

  3. The guy walks like he's drunk. While traffic goes on, no one stops. And where is the guy he pulled over? People should s!ow down when they see these cars by the road

  4. Omg, that was so terrible to watch. I always worried about police getting hit by a car cuz they have to stand we’re cars are going by!! I feel so bad for any officer to stand there while stopping another vehicle. I feel so bad for for them💗

  5. This poor guy….. Slammed with a car and they didnt even get out to help. How can you not have a heart we are all human! I have ran across and intersection when a mother and kid were hit. NO one helped me…. People stared and just looked. I was the only 1 out of 500 people who called for help. They sat around parked in their cars looking at ME like i was crazy. We were in a school section picking up kids.

  6. Horrific to watch. My heart goes out to him. That POS who hit him will get his if not already.
