Congratulations to Troopers Kamelle Smith and Debra Teague for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Troopers of the Month for November 2008, for their courage and determination while assisting a crash victim.

On November 28, 2008, Troopers Smith and Teague were dispatched to a two vehicle crash on the southbound side of State Road 91 in the vicinity of mile-marker 179. One of the vehicles traveled into a canal filled with water and mud and began to float on the surface. The vehicle was occupied by a 79 year old male driver. Trooper Smith and Trooper Teague entered the canal up to chest deep water-mud, made contact with the driver through the vehicle's passenger door, and assisted him to safety on the grass shoulder. Trooper Smith and Trooper Teague demonstrated courage and determination by physically removing the driver from a dangerous environment and getting him to safety.

Troopers Smith and Teague are commended for their excellent police work and dedication, which exemplifies the best tradition of the Florida Highway Patrol. Congratulations for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Troopers of the Month!
