On August 6, 2015, Sgt. James Rose was responding to an “officer needs assistance” call on his department motorcycle. As he rounded Sully’s Curve (a notoriously difficult bend), his motorcycle hit an oil spill on the road and he lost control.
Sgt. Rose slid into the curb and was ejected from the motorcycle. His helmet cracked from the impact and his torso struck a traffic pole. The accident caused his left arm to become trapped between the pole and his chest, and he sustained a severe fracture in both bones in his forearm.
At the hospital, the doctors discovered that his Summit™ SM01 level IIIA armor had protected his torso and he sustained no internal injuries. The doctors have credited his armor for saving him from serious bodily harm or worse.
Sgt. Rose is recovering from his arm injuries and will be returning to duty soon.
