DALLAS — Dash cam video captured a close call for a Dallas County Sheriff’s Deputy during a traffic stop July 10.

CBS DFW reports Deputy Christopher Loboda was in the middle of conducting a traffic stop when the incident occurred.

As Loboda spoke with the driver he pulled over, a pickup came within inches of side-swiping him before grinding to a halt moments later.

Luckily, Loboda was able to move out of the path of the vehicle after seeing it speeding towards him.

“It happens too often, and again a lot of it has to be with people being in a hurry. They’ve got to get somewhere. They’ve got to get somewhere yesterday,” Loboda told CBS DFW.

The driver of the pickup was not cited in the incident.
