2012 MTSC Special Achievement Awards Ceremony

Trooper Douglas Cropper was recognized for his brave

and timely actions in stopping a wrong-way driver on I-295 in

Portland just before the Tukey’s Bridge. On June 29, 2012 after

pulling over a truck, he saw a car traveling northbound in the

southbound lane. Reversing direction to the nearby exit ramp,

he maneuvered through traffic on Marginal Way, entered the

interstate northbound, turned into the crossover, and positioned

his cruiser in the path of the wrong-way driver with only a

fraction of a second to spare. Trooper Cropper’s quick thinking

helped prevent an imminent head on collision.

Pfc. Lisa Bryant was recognized for her courageous

and timely actions in providing emergency medical care

to Mr. Larry Huff. Pfc. Bryant of Scarborough, Army National

Guard medic for the 133rd Engineer Battalion in Gardiner and

University of Southern Maine student, was the first on the

scene of a crash in Bowdoinham on Tuesday, August 21, 2012.

Lisa was driving on I-295 in Bowdoinham when the crash

occurred. The occupant, 67 year-old Larry Huff, was ejected

from the vehicle and not breathing. Bryant had her supplies

with her and was able to resuscitate Huff at the scene.
