Police are sworn to serve and protect but one officer in Germany did entirely the opposite, all by accident of course.
Video taken from the helmet camera of a motorcycle rider captured the whole incident, and it has quickly gone viral.
The footage showed the motorcyclist riding down a two-lane road flanked by houses and buildings.
As the rider approached a cross road, a police car could be seen to the right, waiting to turn onto the same road.Related articles

Police can also make mistakes
While the car was initially at a stop, it didn’t stay there to let the motorcycle pass.
Instead, the police vehicle swung out to turn left onto the road, crashing straight into the bike in the process.
Luckily the rider was able to jump off their bike before it went under the wheel of the car.
