LOWNDES COUNTY, Ga. (CNN) - Here’s a good reminder of why it’s important to pull over for emergency vehicles.

Body cam footage from a deputy in Georgia shows the aftermath of a car accident.

But another one is about to happen -- when a car hits a tow truck and goes airborne – 120 feet in the air.

The deputy rushed to help the 21-year-old driver who survived the accident.

A deputy was also injured by the flying debris.

The video is making its rounds on social media -- officials say it’s raising awareness of Georgia’s move over law -- which requires drivers to slow down and move over a lane when approaching emergency vehicles on the side of the road -- that includes tow trucks.

Many states in the U.S. have similar laws.
