Large Branch Narrowly Misses Wisconsin Police Car

A large branch fell directly in front of a police car in Greendale, Wisconsin, during a period of “heavy, wet snow” in the area, according to the National Weather Service.

Dashcam footage posted to Facebook on March 10 by the Greendale Police Department shows the branch falling near the car.

“I can only imagine what Sergeant Thompson was thinking as this large branch fell a couple car lengths away from the squad car,” they said in the post.

Despite snow tapering off into Friday, local media warned people to watch out for tree branches and “potentially more falling throughout the day.” Credit: Greendale Police Department via Storyful
