An intoxicated woman in Texas narrowly escaped being hit by a car after she fell asleep lying down in the middle of the road, according to the Fulshear Police Department.

An officer’s dash camera took video of a vehicle swerving to avoid running over the woman’s head.

According to police, the woman was spotted napping in the middle of the road around 1:45 a.m. June 2.

Police say she ended up there after her car got stuck in a nearby ditch.

In the video, after the car ahead of the police cruiser swerves to avoid hitting the woman, the officer gets out and runs toward the woman.

After the officer wakes her, she stands up on her own, but then appears to stumble backward.

The woman was arrested for public intoxication.
