ELLIS COUNTY, Kan. — The Kansas Highway Patrol release images of a patrol car as it was slammed Tuesday by a distracted driver.

Since 2006 in Kansas the Move Over Law has required drivers to move to the side, away from emergency lights. And in recent years it has become national law endorsed by the National Transportation Safety Board.
Slow down, move over, when you see lights from any vehicle; police, fire, highway workers, tow trucks, roadside assistance etc.
Tpr Summers was standing at/in the door of the truck he was inspecting when the crash occurred.
KHP say, “Thankfully he was not seriously injured, this could have easily been much worse.”
