A: About two to three years ago, there was a vehicle pursuit involving several jurisdictions along Md. 140 and Market Street. When the pursuit ended, several officers including myself were able to get the driver out of the vehicle. Immediately we observed that the driver had sustained a self-inflicted life-threatening injury to his neck and was bleeding profusely. We immediately placed the driver on his side and I, kneeling behind him, placed my hand inside his neck and pinched his artery to slow the bleeding down. Now to give you a little perspective, it was winter time and the coldest day of the year with a temperature of minus-5 degrees that night. It was so cold that his blood was freezing on the pavement. It seemed like forever that I sat there in the middle of Route 140, wind whipping and me shivering along with other officers waiting for medics to arrive. I did my best to keep him alive. I’m proud to say that he survived after being airlifted to Shock Trauma. That was the scariest and proudest moment of my career.
