Nevada Highway Patrol saves woman

With seconds to spare, troopers saved a woman running on interstate


Dash cam video shows two Nevada Highway Patrol Troopers running into traffic to save a woman, twice.

In the first video, you can see Trooper Jared Truscello pull onto the shoulder of the highway at 2:30AM.

Trooper Truscello spots a woman walking on the interstate. He stops his patrol car and gets out to talk to her. But she doesn’t want to listen. He starts screaming.

“Hey! Get off the road. Get over here!” he can be heard saying in the video.

“Excuse me?” she replied.

“Yeah, come over here!” Truscello shouts back.

"She eventually decided she didn't want to listen to me, so she ran into the travel lanes and stopped when two semi-trucks were coming,” said Truscello in an interview with News 3.

Seconds later, you can hear Truscello yelling, “Get out of the road! No! Get out of the road! Get out of the road!”

In the video you can hear as he struggles to restrain the woman.

“Give me your arm! Give me your arm. Stop! I want you to sit right there,” he can be heard saying in the video. He eventually pulled her to safety.

Then, it happened again.

Two months later, NHP Trooper Dustin Dunbar saves the same woman in another terrifying roadside rescue at the same spot on the Interstate.

“You kind of accept the fact that you have to do what you have to do.”

Both troopers have been awarded life-saving medals by the Department Public Safety.

“It's the reason I joined up with Nevada Highway Patrol. I want to go out there and try and save lives and serve my community. If I could save one life in my career, that's good enough for me,” explained Truscello.
