It happened Tuesday in Scotland, and a sergeant was lucky to escape, police said.

As high winds occurred, police initially responded to an overturned truck when wind blew over the second truck, The Scottish Sun reported.

The sergeant said he “took a deep breath, got out, checked that the driver” was OK and radioed for assistance, authorities said on Twitter.

The footage showed the truck falling sideways with the trailer slamming into the car and road.

A chief superintendent said the “cool-as-a-cucumber” sergeant joked that he just polished his patrol vehicle the previous day.

Sgt Easton, the driver, was as cool-as-a-cucumber when he broadcast on INTOP1: “We need to close the A1 now: a lorry has just toppled onto my patrol car. And I just polished it yesterday!” I nearly spilt my mug of tea but was quickly reassured when told the BMW was a ‘64 plate! pic.twitter.com/eX6lDJGUXy
