District Sergeant Named Trooper of the Month

Congratulations Sgt. Mary Godino for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Trooper of the Month for November 2011.

While traveling to work Nov. 9, 2011, Sgt. Godino noticed a stopped school bus, a cloud of dust and people waving their arms. At the scene, Godino determined that a fertilizer truck had been unable to stop and had overturned onto its left side. The driver of the fertilizer truck was trapped inside his vehicle. Godino crawled into the cab of the truck along with a nurse who had stopped to help and was able to keep the driver’s airway open until emergency medical services arrived. Upon arrival, the fire department and the wrecker service were able to extract the driver.

Without her quick response and decisive action, there could have been grave consequences to the incident. The Florida Highway Patrol commends Godino for her actions and her demonstrated commitment to the residents of Florida.
