An accident involving an SUV that plowed into a New Jersey State Police vehicle during a traffic stop in Hamilton Township earlier this week was captured on video.

The crash happened late Thursday morning in front of H. Carlson & Sons, a contractor located near Cherry Lane, just west of Route 50 in the heart of Atlantic County.

Video from outside of that business, obtained by KYW-TV, showed the frightening moments.

Two state troopers were walking outside, conducting a traffic stop, when they were knocked to the ground.

Harry Carlson told the station in an interview, "I guess God was on their side. I think two seconds earlier, it may not have been the same outcome."

The troopers were taken to a hospital for treatment and have since been released. Officials say they will both be OK.

The driver of the SUV, who was trapped for over an hour, was airlifted to a hospital where she still was as of Friday.

The Black Horse Pike was closed for several hours while the crash was investigated and cleared.
