Deputy Thomas Welch was in high speed pursuit of a stolen vehicle in the early morning hours of Jan. 16, 1989. As his vehicle entered an intersection, he was broadsided by another car. The impact resulted in totaling his patrol car and Welch receiving minor bruises to his legs and a cracked rib. Dr. Lorenzo, of Houston NW Medical ER stated that Welch’s injuries were less as a “direct result of his (Second Chance®)vest absorbing and distributing the shock and impact from striking the steering wheel.
