Cop fires at speeding SUV moments before a horrific crash

On Friday, November 6th, 2015, Police Officer Matt Stacy of Sandy Springs, Oklahoma, was attempting to launch a spike strip ahead of a suspect in a stolen SUV when he ran out of time. The SUV was barreling toward his position, so he did everything he was trained to do. He drew his weapon, called for a halt, and fired at the last minute. Both shot missed, one hit the SUV and the other hit his own patrol car as the suspect slammed into it. Stacy was violently thrown backwards and sent tumbling down the road for what feels like an eternity. Miraculously, Stacy suffered only minor injuries. The driver, 41-year-old Stacey Ann Bunsey, was taken into custody and charged with assault and battery, evading police, DUI of drugs, possession of a stolen vehicle, and resisting arrest.
