Horrifying video footage out of England shows a car swerving out of control and nearly slamming into a police officer on foot.
 
The Jan. 30 footage, released Friday, was captured in Liverpool on a rainy day.
 
It shows a Mercedes sliding onto the shoulder of a freeway as the officer walks walks along it, back turned.
 
While the officer appears to just barely make it out unscathed, the car does slam into something else: The back of a Highways Agency truck.
 
The force of the impact – and likely the freight – sends the officer tumbling to the ground. 
 
Luckily, neither the Mercedes driver nor the police officer was seriously injured, according to local news outlet the Chester Chronicle .
