IOWA (WHAS11) -- An Iowa police officer is lucky to be alive after a freak accident during a traffic stop.
Check out the video caught on the officer's dash cam.
The 30-foot oak tree came crashing down on top of him.
The officer said it felt like being swatted by a giant fly swatter, but lucky for him, he walked away with only minor scrapes and bruises.
The officer wasn't the only lucky one of the night, either. The driver of the vehicle said that likely saved him from getting a ticket.
