Posted: Updated:
IOWA CITY, IA (WKOW) -- Newly released video is a good reminder to move over when law enforcement officers are stopped along the road.

Deputies in Iowa were just feet from being hit by a truck.

 This happened on Interstate 80 in Iowa City last Friday.
Authorities say a semi didn't slow down and rear-ended a truck, sending it flying toward the deputy's car.
It clipped the back as the officers got out of the way.

Everyone walked away without any injuries.
The semi driver was ticketed for going too fast.
