JUPITER, FL (WFLX) - The Jupiter Police Department released dashcam video from inside a patrol car showing exactly what happened when a man slammed into an officer's vehicle early Sunday morning.

Police said a man fell asleep behind the wheel while driving on I-95 near Military trail and hit a concrete barrier wall. The car then slammed into officer Jason Starks' patrol car who was also traveling on I-95.

The officer's vehicle then flipped over multiple times before resting on the side of the road. 

Officer Starks was rushed to the hospital and was released Sunday evening.  He didn't suffer any broken bones but suffers from sores and bruises across his body.

The driver received a minor traffic violation.
