YALE (NEWS1130) - The quick and selfless actions of an RCMP officer in the Fraser Valley have saved a 15-year-old girl from certain injury or death.
The teen was nearly hit by a sandtruck early this morning on Highway One. The truck lost traction, hit cars involved in a previous accident. The Mountie literally picked up the girl and threw her clear of the car that was pushed in her direction.
But Constable Jim Moir could not save himself. He is an 18-year veteran of the force.
Sergeant Peter Thiessen describes his injuries. "He [has] a crushed leg, he's undergone surgery and now he's going to require some extensive recovery time and physiotherapy."
The girl was not injured.
