Caught on Tape: Trooper dash cam records near head-on crash

Story Published: Oct 28, 2010 Courtesy Oregon State Police BURNS, Ore., - The Oregon State Police has released a startling 27-second video highlighting a head-on crash involving one of its troopers.

The video, which was taken last year in Eastern Oregon near Burns, shows OSP Trooper Josh Nagle driving to an injury crash on Highway 20 during icy conditions.

The video shows the trooper passing a semi and then soon after a gray pickup loses control and slams into the trooper's vehicle.

Nagle, who had been with OSP for one year, steered to the right shoulder in an attempt to avoid the pickup but was struck nearly head-on. After the initial impact, a dump truck following Nagle's patrol car struck the rear of the involved pickup.

Emergency workers spent about 30 minutes using ‘Jaws of Life' to extricate Nagle before he and the other driver were transported to a local hospital wit
