NHP Troopers honored for running into I-15 traffic to save woman

LAS VEGAS - Talk about going above and beyond!  Nevada Highway Patrol troopers were just honored for risking their lives more than once to save a woman after she ran into traffic.

On two occasions, exactly two months apart, NHP responded to the area of Interstate 15 and Silverado Ranch for a call about a woman in distress. In both incidents, troopers observed the same woman running into highway traffic.

But almost like a superhero, with traffic flying by, troopers
disregarded their own safety by running into traffic to save her from harm's way.

For their brave efforts, both Troopers were awarded a lifesaving medal by the Department of Public Safety.
