Now You See Me, Now You Don’t: Semi Plows Into Squad Car

A police vehicle was struck by a semi truck this past Monday, in Ashwaubenon, Brown County, Wisconsin. According to authorities, the crash happened because the driver of the semi failed to slow down given the slippery conditions.

Following the impact, the officer became trapped for a brief period of time inside the squad car, yet was thankfully uninjured, as reported by We Are Green Bay. Meanwhile, the intersection where the crash took place had to be closed for 2 and a half hours.

“This is a good reminder to drive within safe speeds so you are able to stop and/or avoid crashes when conditions deteriorate,” was the message issued by Ashwaubenon Public Safety, who also posted images of the car on Facebook in order to show the extent of the damage.

Luck played a part

The Explorer did quite well to keep its occupant safe during the crash, especially when you consider the sheer force with which it was struck. Still, the SUV (and its driver) were lucky not to get hit at a 90-degree angle, which would have led to a more uneven distribution of force.

As for what legal consequences ensued, the semi driver was merely cited for “operating too fast for conditions.” In other words, they got off easy and were lucky the officer wasn’t harmed.

In the end, everyone should pay more attention to their surroundings while crossing an intersection in these types of weather conditions, even drivers who have a green light – they might just avoid getting hit by out-of-control vehicles.

      I’m pretty sure the driver lost control way before the accident. Even though the light was green, police officers are trained to look before proceeding. Some busses and trucks stop and look before crossing railroad tracks and everyone should double check the traffic before proceeding through intersections.

      • Merc1

        Yeah we know.

      I’m sure they will “throw the book” at him

  • Wandering_Spirit

    I will make it, i will make it. I am sure i’ll make it. Then you wake up….

  • TheAmerican2point0

    Good thing the officer is okay

  • Kagan

    So no blame on the police who steps out in front of him and even stops.

    • ChrisInIL

      Watch the video before commenting.

      • Kagan

        OK he got green. But why put a video and give a ilussion of something else!

      • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

        -sticks up for the cops

        • ChrisInIL

          I stick up for the facts.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Honestly you don’t know what facts is.

          • ChrisInIL

            Projection doesn’t work on me. What else do you have?

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            No, it clearly describes about you. Like honestly, you don’t know nothing at all. Just go back to 4chan and learn how to troll properly.

          • ChrisInIL

            So you don’t have anything other than projection? Got it.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Your comebacks and sarcasm is very weak. You need to work on it in order to trigger me.

          • ChrisInIL

            I’m not being sarcastic. I’m merely pointing out the flaws in your argumentative tactics. You can look up the term “hoisted on your own petard” for further clarification.

            You claim I’m trying to trigger you, yet all you’ve done in this entire thread is to trigger me and others. Once again, you resort to projection.

            Don’t be upset that you haven’t been able to succeed. The fact of the matter is that I don’t respond emotionally to comments in person or on the internet.

    • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

      You should know that the semi truck can’t come to a complete stop when it’s snow. So the cop should be more aware before he hit on the gas.

      • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

        So that makes it the cops fault that the semi driver ran the light?

        Yeah, your logic is flawed.

        • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

          Your logic is at the bottom, you don’t know nothing about cars or semi trucks. IDK how you have a driver licenses when you don’t even have a clue how long does it take for a big vehicle to stop especially on snow. This proves that you’re nothing but an angry SJW idiot that likes to start a conflict. Keep following me around troll. 🤷‍♂️🤣😂🤣😂🤷‍♂️

          • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

            You call me an idiot but you’ve got no concept of spelling, punctuation, or grammar? Okay then.

            Stay in school.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Knowing concept of spelling, punctuation, or grammar doesn’t make you sound smart, you buffoon SJW. It’s knowing what you’re saying as long you have right amount of evidence. It’s not my fault that i’m a complete idiot who follows a particular person around to start messing with him because he’s so bias against other group. Get real kid, if you’re going to troll, at least do it good.

  • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

    Cops fault

    • ChrisInIL

      It’s your parents fault you lack an understanding of reality.

      • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

        It’s not my fault that you morons didn’t see the full of video. SMH you pansies are so full of emotions. 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

        • ChrisInIL

          (he said, overreacting emotionally – completely unaware of the irony of his own statements)

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            -another hurt emotional liberal.

          • ChrisInIL

            Doubling down on your responses driven by your overactive emotions doesn’t work on me. What else do you have?

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            I just love how that low IQ HaltestelleLuitpolthafen just give thumbs ups every of your lame comments. It sad that both of your intelligence doesn’t surpass of a tree bark. Anything else, you emotional liberal?

          • ChrisInIL

            How does another poster upvoting my comments have anything (other than the upvoting) to do with my comments?

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Are you still ranting boy?

          • ChrisInIL

            I asked a question.

            I’ll give you this – in five words, you managed to use projection (obviously your go-to method) and deflection (since you didn’t answer the question). Impressive.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            Why are you ranting boy?

          • ChrisInIL

            You’re just repeating yourself. You get my hopes up by combining two failed tactics in one, and this?

            That just makes me sad.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            You’re ranting? Do you do this online whenever someone hurt your sensitive feelings of yours?

          • ChrisInIL

            There it is….repetition and projection. Come on. I know you have more failed tactics.

            You can do it!

    • G82FS

      Still an idiot…

      • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

        -hurt extremely

      • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

        I bet your slow self didn’t know that when it snows, the semi truck can’t come to complete stop. Now whose an idiot now? Everyone is looking at you kid.

        • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

          “when it snows, the semi truck can’t come to complete stop”

          Yes, when it snows no semi can come to a complete stop. Ever.

          “Now whose an idiot now?”

          You are, for thinking that semis can’t stop.

          “Everyone is looking at you kid.”

          Naa, they’re looking at you.

          • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

            -obvious troll wants my attention because no one is giving him the attention of his day.

            You’re sad it’s not even funny. Keep embarrassing yourself liberal. 🤷‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤷‍♂️

    • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

      Wait, it is the cops fault the semi RAN A RED LIGHT and ran into the cop who was going through a GREEN light???

      Your lack of intelligence is astounding, you prove it every time you comment here.

      • EL CHAPO THA GREAT

        Every time i leave a comment on here for my own opinions, i get a pansy attack dog libtard with a low IQ who gets emotional about sodomites, women, and even cops too. Man, it’s either you’re that lonely that no one talks to you irl, or you’re just some f up SJW who wants his own fantasies run how you think of it. LMAO, keep embarrassing yourself for attention. I just love how you love to start a conflict towards your own superior. 🤣😂🤣

  • Romanovich

    Truck driver don`t like a cops

  • Well, at least they still have a good left rear door.

  • ChrisInIL

    I wasn’t driving the truck or the police car, so your faulty evaluation of my driving skills is irrelevant.

    If you don’t care, they why did you post that it was the cop’s fault in the first place?

    Since you don’t care, and don’t read, and apparently didn’t watch the video, I’ll let you know that from the time the video starts to the time the police car starts moving is 10 seconds. He was already at a complete stop. The semi was driving too fast for conditions, and not only blew the light, he had no control over a very large amount of weight while careening through the intersection.

    You keep responding when all the facts prove you wrong. What are you compensating for?
