The video you are about to watch is the motor vehicle stop worse case scenario. 

It is also exactly what you should be prepared for on every stop.

The incident took place on Sunday, March 10, 2013 just before 6:00 p.m. in Middlefield, Ohio.

A two-man unit occupied by Officers Erin Thomas and Brandon Savage stopped a car for running a stop sign.

As the officers were getting ready to make their initial approach, the driver's side door quickly opens followed by the driver coming out with an AK-47 loaded with a 40-round magazine. 

The suspect immediately opened fire on the two officers. 

Both officers were hit, but they repositioned themselves and returned fire.

The video will take you through the rest.

Officer Thomas was struck in the finger, and, ultimately, had to have her finger amputated.

Officer Savage was struck several times but is okay and back at work.

In all, the shootout lasted 26 seconds.  The suspect fired a total of 37 rounds, Savage fired 29 and Thomas fired 17. 

In the end, these officers won.  They survived a surprise attack by a suspect armed with an AK-47 and a 40-round clip.  They did an outstanding job.

The entire incident can be watched on the video below.  The actual stop comes in around the 1.05 mark:
