Honoring The FHP Trooper Who Took A Hit From A Car To Save Civilian

Patel

For Protecting the Palm Beaches, we're honoring the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper who put his own life on the line for a civilian when an out of control car came barrelling toward both of them.  

Video shows 31-year old Mithil Patel shoving a 65-year old man out of the way, along I-95 in Hobe Sound this week.  

He was investigating an earlier crash when a vehicle struck another car, sending it toward the men. 

Patrolman Patel took the hit and flew into the air, suffering injuries, but he has since been released from the hospital.
