An Ohio sheriff captain was run over by a truck when a train slammed into the back of a vehicle in the aftermath of a car crash.

Footage released this month shows Preble County's captain Brad Moore directing traffic following a single-car accident at an intersection near Eaton when he is suddenly struck down.

Thankfully, captain Moore suffered non-life threatening injuries.

The incident happened on January 8 but the video was released this week by Preble County Sheriff's Office.
