Motor officer rear end today.

He is ok with minor injury. He stated had he not scanned the mirrors he would've been between the vehicles. Likely he saw and heard the truck skidding out of control and moved to the right at impact.

Glad he's ok. That's one of my fears, being at a stop and then having to do an emergency maneuver.

Re: Motor officer rear end today.

Sometimes my left hand gets tired of holding in the clutch lever while in first at a light, but then I'm always watching my rear. I've really learned a lot from this forum.
