MOSCOW (KMOV) – A dash-cam captured a police officer in Moscow clutching onto the hood of a vehicle after a routine traffic stop turned life-threatening.
The officer is shown waving over a vehicle after the driver made an illegal turn in a construction zone.
Moments after, the driver rams into the officer and speeds off with the officer clutching onto the hood of the car for his life.
The vehicle proceeds to weave in and out of traffic on the busy highway as the officer yells for the driver to stop.

In Russia it is common for motorists to have dash-cams in their vehicles as a defense against insurance fraud.
