Amazingly, the officer was fine.

Officer Veach of the Centerville, Iowa Police Department made it out of this mess with a few scrapes, bruises, and three stitches after a large tree collapsed on him and the car he was pulling over.

Even more amazing is that the driver got off without a ticket, as Veach told Fox2 News out of St. Louis.

"That's the one true way to get out of a ticket; ya know everyone asks police officer how you get out of a ticket? If a tree falls on you you're probably going to get off."
