Video from a delivery truck in the ditch showed a vehicle going off the road and nearly striking two people, including a trooper who had responded to the scene during Friday's winter storm.

The out of control vehicle went into the ditch and struck the first vehicle. The trooper and another person were able to move out of the way in the seconds before the crash happened.

Officials said no one was seriously injured and cautioned drivers to slow down in the winter weather.
