FAIRFIELD --One man is under arrest after police said he rammed a vehicle on the shoulder of the road, narrowly missing the drivers who were standing there and the whole incident was captured by the state police cruiser's dash cam.

Friday at 1 a.m. State Police were investigating a two car accident near Exit 19 on 1-95 in Fairfield.

As the drivers were standing outside the vehicles, police said a Nissan Maxima traveling at a high rate of speed in the far left lane, veered to the right, narrowly missed one cruiser,  and struck one of the two vehicles involved in the original accident. The drivers and a cruiser were inches from being struck as well.
