CAUGHT ON CAMERA: DOC employee injured helping crash victim

CAUGHT ON CAMERA: DOC employee injured helping crash victim

STRINGTOWN, Okla. -- On Aug. 23, as the local fire chief, Roy Gadberry was called out during heavy rains to a wreck involving a fellow Mack Alford Correctional Center employee on US 69 near Oklahoma 43 in Stringtown. While he was assisting at the scene, another vehicle hydroplaned and violently struck him with the trailer it was towing. 

As the trailer was about to knock him head over heels into a ditch, he somehow managed to push another emergency responder to safety. This selfless act put him in place to receive the full force of the out-of-control trailer. Amazingly, he was not seriously injured. 

Roy serves your community every day either as a correctional officer for ODOC or as a first responder for the local fire department. His commitment to the safety and security of Oklahomans is honorable and distinguishes him as a true public servant.
