When Great Bend, KS, Data Collection Technician Kevin Boese recently witnessed a vehicle rollover accident while returning from a mail test, he immediately acted to assist the occupant. The task of reaching the driver wasn’t easy.

The vehicle rolled off the road multiple times until it came to a stop upside-down in a field. Boese climbed through rough terrain in the dark to reach the vehicle.

Boese is a National Guard reservist who served two tours in Iraq. His experience allowed him to quickly reach the driver who was bleeding profusely from injuries sustained in the accident. Fortunately for the lone vehicle occupant, she chose to wear a seat belt and avoided a 2-inch steel pipe that had pierced the vehicle and entered the cockpit. Boese called 911 and remained with the woman providing the support he could until emergency responders arrived.

“Kevin is an exemplary individual who always goes above and beyond to do what’s right,” said Central Plains Statistical Programs Supervisor Carleen Currier. “He’s exactly who I’d want to help me if I were in an accident.”
