WATCH: Speeding Cop Who Crashed Into SUV Wasn’t Responding to an Emergency

Heart-stopping footage shows a speeding police cruiser slamming into an SUV, leaving its driver disabled.

An Inside Edition investigation, which will air in full Thursday, discovered Officer Christopher Ferguson was not responding to an emergency when he crashed into the vehicle in Smithville, Tenn., in 2017.

He was going 61 mph in a 40-mile zone, according to a police report. He was driving home at the time.

The SUV’s driver, 70-year-old James Cryer, who was not wearing his seat belt, was ejected from his vehicle and landed in the middle of the street, leaving him permanently disabled.

“I thought we were going to die,” his wife Rena, who was a passenger in the car, told Inside Edition.

The district attorney did not file any charges in connection with the crash, stating that both drivers were at fault — Ferguson for speeding and Cryer for failing to yield as he pulled into the path of Ferguson’s car.
