A truck goes airborne, and narrowly misses a state trooper and deputies investigating a roadside crash.

The dramatic near-miss was caught on dashboard camera from one of the deputies last Friday.

Aurhotities in Johnson County, Iowa, say a semi rear-ended a pick-up, sending it straight into the officers, and down the embankment.

It appears the semi did not slow down like the other drivers did while approaching the previous accident scene.

The Iowa State Trooper was treated for minor injuries. No word on the condition of the pick-up driver.
