Video: Fla. deputy saves driver and 3 dogs from burning, overturned vehicle
Deputy J.J. Roe was able to force open the vehicle’s door, freeing the trapped driver and three dogs before extinguishing the flames
LEVY COUNTY, Fla. — After a car rolled over and hit a tree this week in north-central Florida, a deputy got the driver and three dogs out and extinguished flames before they engulfed the vehicle.
Deputy J.J. Roe responded to the single-vehicle crash Tuesday east of Bronson, the Levy County Sheriff’s Office said.
After arriving at the scene and seeing the driver trapped inside the smoking vehicle, Roe forced a car door open, ran back to his patrol vehicle to get a fire extinguisher and put out the now-visible flames, the sheriff’s office said.
Deputy J.J. Roe responded to a single vehicle roll over crash on March 24, 2020 just east of Bronson. Upon his arrival he found the driver was still inside the vehicle that was beginning to smoke. Deputy Roe was able to communicate with the driver after forcing open a door then ran back to his car and retrieved his issued fire extinguisher to put out the now visible flames. Upon discharging the extinguisher, smoke enveloped him and the car. Deputy Roe was able to assist the driver out of the overturned vehicle and continued his efforts to save the three dogs she was traveling with. Sheriff McCallum wanted to share the heroic actions of Deputy Roe with each of you. “The current COVID-19 pandemic is overshadowing the constant calls for service that, as you can see for yourself, highlights yet another selfless act by my deputies who are committed to ensuring the safety of each of you.”
