An officer saved his partner's life by pulling her out of the way of an out-of-control car.

The two officers were investigating an accident on a highway in Gate City, Virginia, when a vehicle on the other side of the road lost control, crossed the median, and came barreling into the patrol vehicle. Luckily the one officer saw the car, and pulled his partner out of the way, a second before getting hit. (Watch the amazing video below)

According to the Gate City Police Department press release:

Officer Jessica McGraw was in the process of conducting a motor vehicle accident investigation on Highway 23 S. at the 6 mile marker. Officer Matthew Stewart responded to the scene of the crash investigation upon McGraw’s request to assist with clarification of an issue with one of the individual drivers’ license status. Officers McGraw and Stewart discussed this issue off of the roadway next to Officer McGraw’s vehicle. As the discussion between McGraw and Stewart took place, a driver of a white passenger car traveling on the North bound side of Highway 23 lost control, crossed the median, and struck the front left side of Officer McGraw’s patrol vehicle. The impact of the passenger vehicle rapidly forced the patrol vehicle off the shoulder of the road towards the conversing officers.
