Southern Shores Police Department officers recognized for lifesaving actions

Four Southern Shores Police Department officers were recognized at the Tuesday, April 13 meeting of the Southern Shores Town Council with Life Saving Awards for action and service.

On July 14, 2020, Sgt. Eric Brinkley, Cpl. Darrell Brickhouse, SRO Tracy Mann and Officer Jamie Hines responded to a motor vehicle crash with serious injury on US 158 near Duck Woods Drive. The collision involved a large box truck and a small passenger vehicle.

When officers arrived, the male driver of the small passenger car had sustained serious injuries, the most severe of which was to his arm. It required quick action to keep the man from losing more blood.

Officers successfully used a field tourniquet to stop the bleeding and keep the man alive and responsive, stated a SSPD press release. Officers then helped EMS and fire get the individual out of the car and into an ambulance.

Due to the officers’ training and quick actions, the man was transported by Dare MedFlight to Norfolk and survived, stated the release.
