Trooper Toni Schuck, a 26-year veteran of the Florida Highway Patrol, was, last Sunuday, providing protection to 7,000 runners participating in the Skyway 10K in New Port Richey, Florida. She heard a radio report that a woman in a BMW blew through barricades blocking off the runners’ route. Schuck swung around and moved to intercept the suspected drunk driver.

Fox 13 News reports that Schuck’s Chevrolet Tahoe cruiser was the last obstacle between the BMW and the runners. As you can see in the above footage, she took a head-on collision to bring the drunk driver to a complete stop.

Police arrested the driver, who, at a hospital, tested three times over the legal limit for alcohol. Trooper Schuck was seriously injured and remains on medical leave until she has recovered and can resume her heroic duties.
