ANTHONY, Kan. (AP) - A Harper County sheriff’s deputy says her bulletproof vest likely saved her life after she was pinned between two trucks during a traffic stop.

KWCH-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1vsm1ql ) Deputy Melanie Miller responded to a reckless driving call on Sunday. She says the truck driver sped away from her but was eventually cornered in an enclosed area. She says she got out of her police truck and drew her weapon.

Miller says the driver intentionally accelerated into her and pinned her between the vehicles.

Doctors told her that the vest saved her life. She says she only suffered some bruising and strained muscles.

The suspect was later arrested after he drove into a field and a farmer found him.
