The trooper activates his flashing lights and checks the front of his car, which caught fire.

Although the crash happened nearly a month ago, the video was just released by the Highway Patrol.

But the couple on the motorcycle talked about what happened.           

"I think I went off to the left side. I couldn't see her at all and we just slid and slid and slid. The only time it wouldn't hurt for two seconds is when my helmet would hit the ground," said Corey Waldman.

The couple credits their helmets for saving their lives.
