Several Round Rock police officers are being credited with saving the life of a man whose leg was severed in a motorcycle accident.
Officer Sgt. Nate Zoss was the first officer on scene of a collision that occurred in the intersection of Buckboard and southbound I-35 frontage road around 7:30 p.m. Monday night.
Officer Zoss discovered that the collision had severed the lower half of the motorcyclist's leg. With the assistance of Sgt Tate Hunter and Officers Paul Hernandez and Schultz, Zoss applied a tourniquet to stop the victim's bleeding.
The victim was transported to St. David's Round Rock Medical Center. The emergency room physician reported that actions of the officers saved the life of the victim, who would otherwise have died prior to reaching the hospital.
