(CNN) Newly released video from a Texas law enforcement helicopter shows the explosion that ended the life of Austin serial bomber Mark Conditt as pursuing officers tried to arrest him earlier this year.
The video, released by the Texas Department of Public Safety, shows just how close several officers were to being injured when the homemade bomb went off the morning of March 21.
Conditt was driving his SUV around 2 a.m. CT as tactical teams followed him near Round Rock, just north of Austin.
The video eventually shows one police van in front of the bomber’s vehicle when another bumps it from behind. The SUV glances off the van in front and slides into the median between an access road and the highway.
