Quick thinking may have saved the lives of two St. Louis police officers as they were nearly plowed down by a car.
While police were directing traffic away from a crash scene on the interstate, a car slammed into a patrol car, sending it spinning. One officer had to jump over the highway median to get out of the way. The other officer ran down the street. Police say the driver of the white car was not paying attention to the officers.
