Runaway trailer rams into police car


WISCONSIN RAPIDS (WAOW) – A Wisconsin Rapids police officer stopped at an intersection got a surprise – a trailer loaded with landscaping rocks crashed into his squad car.

The trailer became unhitched as a pickup truck turned a corner at the intersection near Riverview Hospital where the squad car was stopped, Lt. Kevin Schwartz said Friday.

He saw it coming. There was no action he could take,” Schwartz said. “A woman sitting next to him (in another car) was pretty shaken up.”

The squad card's dashboard camera was running and captured the trailer as it smashed into the front of the car.

The crash happened about noon Monday. No one was hurt.
