BOONE CO., MO – A drunk driver nearly hit a Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper prior to a collision on I-70 in Boone County on Saturday afternoon, Fox 2 Now reports.
The crash happened near milepost 121 at about 2:48 p.m. on June 5. Dashcam footage from the trooper’s vehicle shows a passenger vehicle traveling in the highway’s left lane alongside a semi truck in the right lane. A second passenger vehicle nearly sideswipes the MSHP vehicle while trying to pass the first passenger vehicle on the highway’s left shoulder. That second vehicle overcorrected and rolled over, coming to a rest on its roof in the middle of the travel lanes.
Fortunately, no one seems to have been injured. The reckless driver was determined to have been intoxicated and was arrested for DWI.
