Video shows Roseville PD nearly T-boned by distracted driver

Police are urging people to stay alert at the wheel.

A police officer in Roseville narrowly missed being T-boned by a distracted driver last month. 

The police department released dashcam footage from the June 22 incident earlier this week, urging people to remind drivers, especially younger drivers, about the dangers of distracted driving. 

The video, as seen below, shows an SUV speeding through a red light, narrowly missing the police cruiser and another vehicle at the intersection of Hwy. 88 and County Road D. 

"Fortunately, no one was injured this time," Roseville PD said in the post. "Unfortunately, not all drivers are this lucky. Please, please, please, stay alert when driving."
