Bodycam shows life-saving actions when a driver became pinned inside a semi's cab following a crash
Harrowing footage from an officer’s body camera has been released from the Fond du Lac Police Department that shows the life-saving actions after a driver became pinned inside the cab of a semi following a crash.
The Fond du Lac Police Department shared the video on Facebook, which details the quick actions of officers using a tourniquet on a 22-year-old driver after his semi-tractor trailer flipped over onto the driver’s side following a crash.
The incident began around 11:50 p.m. on Wednesday near Johnson Street and Wisconsin American Drive.
The 22-year-old driver, who is from Georgia, appeared to have a compound fracture of his arm and significant blood loss, officers say. The man was later transported to a local hospital with ‘significant injuries.’
An investigation into the incident is ongoing, however police say the semi-truck was not carrying any hazardous material and police believe speed and unfamiliarity with the location are contributing factors.
Here’s a small example of our commitment to our Mission, Vision, and Foundational Beliefs. Performing our duties with the utmost professionalism and compassion. Here we see quick life-saving actions as FDLPD Officer Elijah Fuller applies a tourniquet to the arm of the driver, stopping him from bleeding profusely.
