The video posted to the department's Twitter page on Feb. 16 shows a CSP trooper pulling a driver over along a freeway. After the trooper walked away from the car, another vehicle was seen rear-ending the car that had been pulled over.

Patrol officials said the trooper tried to pull the driver over the right, but ultimately, the driver stopped on a wide left shoulder.

"Move Over. Pay attention. Real lives are at risk, including yours. This could have been worse," officials with CSP wrote.
