EATON, OHIO -- New dash cam video of a police officer being hit by a semi truck was released and the officer is speaking out about those terrifying moments.

Captain Brad Moore is seen in the video directing traffic around a minor accident earlier this month.

The semi truck gets stuck between the gates of a railroad crossing.

As Moore tries to direct the truck around the gates a train hits the truck sending it into the officer.

Moore was hit in the head and left arm but managed to roll away from the truck's rear wheels.

Captain Moore says he feels very fortunate that he survived and hopes to return to light duty next week.
