Troop I (Tallahassee)

Congratulations, Trooper William T. Evers, for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for May 2012.

On May 14, Evans saw an erratic driver on State Road 263 in Leon County. After observing the vehicle for about a mile, Evers conducted a traffic stop. Evers approached the vehicle and asked the driver if everything was okay, and the driver just stared at him. The driver appeared to be suffering from a medical emergency and was unresponsive. Evers pulled the driver out of the vehicle and began CPR. He continued with chest compressions and rescue breaths until Emergency Medical Service arrived and transported the driver to the hospital. The driver has recovered from his medical emergency thanks to Evers’s quick thinking and effort.

FHP commends Evers for his actions during the incident, where he saved a man’s life, and possibly the lives of other motorists on the road that day.
