Dramatic video of Trooper Poland from earlier today. He was traveling east on I-70 in Russell County as a semi-truck, driving too fast for the conditions, loses control and almost hits him. Thankfully Trooper Poland had a quick reaction and no one was hurt.

Please SLOW DOWN and gauge the road mile by mile. Just because it’s not icy where you are, does not mean it may not be icy 20 miles down the road. Again, if you don’t need to drive please STAY HOME. #BeSafe
