BOYNTON BEACH (CBSMiami) —  A close-call for a Florida Highway Patrol trooper who was nearly hit by a hydroplaning car on SB I-95 in Boynton Beach on May 13.

According to FHP, Trooper Jeremy Medastin was walking back to his patrol car to get started on paperwork for another crash he was investigating, when his vehicle’s dashboard camera captured the heart pounding moments of a car losing control and smashing into the barrier wall on the inside shoulder of the highway.

Medastin jumped up the wall that divides the northbound and south lanes before the car could crush him.

It happened just south of Woolbright Road.
