While en route to work on Nov. 22, 2014, U.S. Secret Service Sergeant-Technician William Uher came upon a motor vehicle accident on the Baltimore-Washington Parkway and was the first to respond. After notifying 911, he went to the scene to offer assistance. When Sergeant-Uher noticed flames originating from underneath the hood of the vehicle, he removed the occupant, who was later determined to have a broken pelvis and unable to walk. Sergeant-Technician Uher has since been promoted to Lieutenant.
