Fearless in Seattle.

On the morning of November 27, a Seattle police officer was responding to a call when a minivan suddenly pulled out in front of his cruiser. The resulting crash trapped the officer inside his burning vehicle, which carried potentially deadly ammunition.

Fortunately, two military policemen who had just returned from Iraq witnessed the accident. According to KVBC News in Las Vegas, they were Sergeant Eddie Nieves and Sergeant Randy Leopard, both members of the Las Vegas-based 313th Military Police Detachment, U.S. Army Reserve. The two sergeants sprang into action and pulled the police officer from his burning car.

Medical reports indicated that the unnamed officer broke several ribs and an ankle, but he was otherwise unharmed.
