A Nevada Highway Patrol trooper is lucky to be alive after a driver slammed into his vehicle while he was pulled off to the side conducting a traffic stop. The driver then fled the scene but was later located by police, according to the Nevada Highway Patrol. This is just another instance of drivers not moving over and slowing down for stopped emergency vehicles, a law in Nevada and many states.
