SAN ANTONIO, Tx -- A San Antonio police officer came within inches of being badly injured or killed.

Video shows the officer walking up to the drivers' side of a truck during a nighttime traffic stop last month on Loop 410 near San Pedro. It was normal enough until he jumped to avoid being hit by a motorcycle that crashed into the back of the truck.

Police say the biker had been cut-off by a truck in the merge lane. The biker was thrown off right before his vehicle hit the truck. He was treated for a few broken bones. The police officer wasn't hurt.
