Dashcam footage released by the department shows the windshield shattering upon impact. The department said that after striking the cruiser, the tire launched into the air and hit a moving vehicle coming in the other direction. 

Bodycam footage from one of the officers inside shows both officers appearing to shield their eyes before the tire hits the windshield, sending glass shards into the interior of the vehicle.

The department said the cruiser suffered some “extensive damage” but both officers and the pickup truck driver were not injured.
