Slow down, and stay away from emergency vehicles and stranded cars in the far right lane. This dashcam video released by Euless police shows what could happen when you don't.

Police have released dashcam video showing a dramatic rollover wreck that happened last weekend on Airport Freeway near Industrial Boulevard.

In the video, a police officer is seen helping a stranded motorist in a red car who has stopped in the right lane. A tow truck driver moves out of the way as a black car skids across the freeway, hits the red car and flips back into traffic.

No one suffered serious injuries, police said.

The incident happened at about 3 p.m., police spokesman Sgt. Scott Peterson said. He said the woman driving the black car told police she was distracted by her phone cord.

On its Facebook page, the police department warned motorists that state law requires drivers approaching emergency vehicles, including tow trucks, to either clear the lane immediately to their right or to slow down to 20 mph below the posted speed limit.
