ST. LOUIS ( -- Dramatic dash camera video captures the scary moments a driver plows into an Illinois State Police squad car.

The sergeant pulled off to the side of the highway after a traffic stop in Moline earlier this week. The emergency lights were still on when a Jeep sideswipes the car then rolls multiple times and catches on fire. 

Both the sergeant and the other driver were not seriously injured. Investigators said the 55-year-old driver of the Jeep was driving under the influence of alcohol.
