Congratulations to Trooper Darryl Haywood for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol's Trooper of the Month for July 2004 for his life-saving actions in pulling a motorist from a burning vehicle.

On Sunday, July 25, 2004, at approximately 6:40 A.M., while on patrol on I-95 Trooper Haywood came upon a single vehicle crash. The driver of the vehicle had fallen asleep, left the roadway, overturned, and struck a tree. When Trooper Haywood arrived on the scene, the vehicle was on fire with the driver still inside. Trooper Haywood quickly approached the burning vehicle, broke out a window, and removed the driver from danger.

Trooper Haywood's quick actions helped save a life! He acted in the highest tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol, and is hereby commended for his brave actions.
