FF & CIVILIAN STRUCK HELPING STRANDED MOTORIST IN FL

     

Saturday, December 8, 2012 A Brevard County firefighter and a witness were struck by a suspected drunk driver while attempting to help another driver early Saturday, Palm Bay police say.

About 12:30 a.m. Saturday, witnesses say they spotted a man slumped over the wheel of his car near the intersection of Palm Bay and Minton roads.

Several bystandards attempted to wake the man and called 9-1-1, said Lt. James Richmond of the Palm Bay Police Department.

Rescue workers also attempted to revive the man and began medical treatment in the median of Minton Road.

That’s when police say Brian Tyrone Washington, 45, drove on to the median, striking a firefighter and one of the people trying to help the disabled motorist.

Police charged Washington with DUI with bodily harm.

Palm Bay police officer Floyd Burke said a field sobriety test was performed on the disabled driver. He was also charged with a DUI.

The firefighter and witness injured at the scene were both taken to Palm Bay Community Hospital for treatment. Both are in stable condition.
