See the frightening exchange of gunfire in the video above

Newly released dash camera video shows a harrowing shootout between a man pulled over for speeding and two Pennsylvania state police troopers.

The Morning Call of Allentown on Thursday posted the recording of the November roadside battle that left an officer badly hurt with wounds to his neck, shoulder and thigh.

Cpl. Seth Kelly nearly died from his wounds, which included a severed femoral artery. Lehigh Valley Live reports Kelly was clinically dead when he arrived at the hospital. He spent 12 days in a medically-induced coma and 25 days in the hospital.

Northampton County prosecutors released the video to the newspaper and other media outlets six weeks after using it in the case against Daniel Clary.

Clary also was shot and drove himself to a hospital.

The video, shot from the dashboard of a state police cruiser, shows troopers trying to arrest Clary for being under the influence. Clary is seen breaking away and troopers spend a moment trying to subdue him before he reaches into his car and pulls out a gun.

First Deputy District Attorney Terence Houck tells the newspaper the troopers involved supported making it public.

“Our concerns have always been the victims, the state troopers in this matter, protecting them,” Houck said. “But after speaking with them, they wanted it released, as did I.”

Clary, a 22-year-old from Effort, Pennsylvania, awaits sentencing.

Clary’s lawyer didn’t immediately return a phone message left after hours. After his conviction, the lawyer told reporters they’d thought he had a valid self-defense argument.
