On May 6, 2022, a16-year-old boy was riding his bicycle with his friends when he collided with a car and was thrown on the pavement. The boy picked himself up and, along with his friends, left the scene. Forty minutes later the young man’s parents called 9-1-1 about the collision. Officer Bergeron responded with paramedics and met with the victim and his friends. One of the boys told Officer Bergeron his friend was rendered unconscious at the time of the collision and he did not recognize them when he regained consciousness. Officer Bergeron also learned the young man had vomited twice. Against medical advice, the victim turned medics away and they left the scene. Officer Irwin, a registered physician’s assistant, arrived at the scene and evaluated the injuries. Officer Irwin discovered the victim did not remember the collision. After conferring with Officer Bergeron, both officers recognized that the symptoms were indicative of a brain injury and called paramedics back to the scene for immediate transport to an emergency room. The child was taken by ambulance to Scripps Mercy Hospital where it was discovered he suffered a life-threatening head injury and underwent emergency brain surgery. According to Doctor Clayton Whiting at Scripps Mercy Hospital, without Officers Bergeron and Irwin’s insistence on transport to a trauma center, the victim could have died. For their efforts Officer Jennifer Bergeron and Officer Larry Irwin were awarded a lifesaving citation.
