Dramatic surveillance video captured the moment a man intentionally crashed into three police officers at a Phoenix gas station, according to officials.

Phoenix police said the attack happened at a QuickTrip gas station at about 1:45 a.m. on Tuesday.

Authorities said the officers had just completed a call and were standing in the parking lot debriefing the incident when 44-year-old Marc Payne intentionally drove his car into them.

The car struck two of the three officers and a patrol cruiser. One of the officers was able to jump out of the way.

Police said Payne then violently struggled with the officers for several minutes before being taken into custody.

The two officers struck by the car sustained serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The third officer who was able to jump out of the way of the car sustained some injuries during the extended struggle with Payne.

Officials said Payne faces three counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
