A local truck driver and a police officer with the Anchorage Police Department had a close call on Christmas Day while helping the stuck truck on Seward Highway in Alaska.

The truck driver narrowly missed getting clipped by an SUV that lost control while coming towards the curve.

The incident was caught on officer Stephen Busby's dash cam video as his vehicle was parked behind the truck.

According to the police, there were no injuries.

The Anchorage Police Department says the close encounter is a reminder to drive carefully in icy conditions.
