Officer Carlson was responding to a call, traveling along the inside lane of a four-lane highway. As the vehicle in front of Carlson hit its brakes, Carlson swung around the vehicle only to broadside another car that had pulled out into the highway. Carlson sustained injuries to his knees when he hit the dashboard and his chest when it collapsed the steering column. His less-than-a-year-old Second Chance® vest caught the column and “saved him from extensive rib and chest injury” states Dr. Merwin Jenkins, Carlson’s attending physician.
We welcome Officer Patrick Carlson, SAVE #423, to The Safariland Group SAVES CLUB®.
