A driver and trooper in Marysville narrowly avoided significant injuries when a box truck clipped the side of a car stopped on the side of the highway.

Ohio State Highway Patrol says the box truck was hit and pushed onto the shoulder by another car changing lanes. The box truck was pushed into the car and the trooper standing on the other side of the vehicle was forced to run away quickly to avoid getting hit.

Drivers are reminded to slow down and move over when they approach public safety vehicles or roadside workers stopped on the side of the road.
