The Oklahoma Highway Patrol released dramatic dashboard camera video from a few weeks ago, when two firefighters in southeast Oklahoma were hit by a trailer along the side of a wet road. The video shows two men with the Stringtown Fire Department standing in a grassy area off a road in the rain when the driver of an SUV heading in the opposite direction lost control. The SUV hydroplaned and crashed into another vehicle on the shoulder, causing a U-Haul trailer to whiplash and hit the two men. Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials said the two men did not have any broken bones and left with only bruises. "This is a graphic reminder to SLOW DOWN -- especially when roads are slick and you see flashing lights," Oklahoma Highway Patrol officials wrote Tuesday in a Facebook post.
