Police say the woman was on her motorcycle driving down Loop 410 when she slammed into a chest of drawers which for some reason was sitting right in the middle of the freeway near the Blanco Road exit.
The officer spun out of control on her motorcycle and barely managed to avoid being hit by an oncoming 18 wheeler. The trucker slammed on the brakes and the officer managed to avoid further injury.
Nobody else was hurt. Police have no idea why the piece of bedroom furniture was in the middle of the busy highway.
