A Florida Highway Patrol trooper is recovering after being struck by a white BMW driver after a traffic stop in Hollywood.
Surveillance video shows Trooper Arsenio Caballero being hit by a white BMW 6 Series last month.
The hit-and-run incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. May 25 on the exit ramp of Florida’s Turnpike near Hollywood Boulevard, ABC news reports.
The video shows another trooper speaking to the driver of the BMW just before Caballero crosses the street in front of the car.
The driver then takes off, striking Caballero and fleeing the scene, the video shows.
Caballero is seen in the video flipping over the hood of the car as the other trooper runs to his aid.
Paramedics transported Caballero to Memorial Regional Hospital to be treated for cuts on his head. He also reportedly suffered a broken wrist.
Authorities said the car was later found abandoned, but the driver has not been located.
