Sometimes in life we just get lucky, and that is exactly what two Iowa police are experiencing after narrowly escaping a pickup truck that careened off the road. The whole incident was caught on one of the officer's dashboard-mounted cameras.

According to ABC News, the crash happened on March 17 on I-80 when the truck slowed because the cops were on the side of the road. A following tractor-trailer rammed into the back of the pickup and knocked it out of control. It just clipped the forward officer's cruiser before flying up onto the berm.

One officer suffered minor industries, according to ABC, but it pales in comparison to what could have happened if the truck had been slightly farther up the road. Scroll down to watch the video and witness the close call.
