An alleged drunk driver narrowly avoided a head-on collision with Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace on Monday morning.

Sheriff Wallace posted the dash cam video to his Facebook page. In it, viewers can see the driver coming around the corner at a high rate of speed and going out of control just feet in front of his patrol car.

DPS trooper Chad Seamans responded to investigate. The driver was arrested after admitting to taking prescription pills and drinking alcohol earlier that morning.

Trinity County is located just southwest between Lufkin and Huntsville.
