KCBD NewsChannel 11 in Lubbock, Texas reports that veteran photographer Caleb Holder was shooting breaking news video of a car crash on Slaton highway near Lubbock, Texas when he suddenly saw the incoming trailer.
“I couldn’t remember if I was recording at the time or how the camera was framed,” Holder tells KCBD. “I just saw that trailer coming and knew I had to run away from it.
“I was looking that direction. That’s where I was focused. That’s when we could hear more tires screeching, and then just barely see headlights coming in through the fog.”
"We could hear more tires screeching, and then just barely see headlights coming in through the fog," Holder reported on KCBD, adding: "I've never seen anything like that in person."
Sgt Johnny Bures said of the injured trooper: ' The trooper that was struck is going to be okay, he does have some serious injuries, but nothing life-threatening.'
A total of seven units from the Lubbock Fire Department responded to the scene with 19 staff members, according to KCBD.
