Trooper: His life flashed before him

Grand Rapids Press

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. —  Scott Wilber heard the skidding tires, turned and saw a Dodge Ram pickup bearing down on him.

He had nowhere to go and no time to move. That's when the 15-year veteran state police trooper believed his life was over, that he would die alongside westbound Int. 96 near Fruit Ridge Avenue NW.

"I have a new and full understanding of what it means to have your life flash in front of your eyes," Wilber said. "The first two things I thought were, 'I'm never going to see my kids again,' and 'This thing is going to squish me between it and my patrol car.' "
