LIVE OAK, Fla. — A fiery crash proved fatal for the passenger in a car that hit a light pole in March. It could have turned fatal for the vehicle's driver had it not been for a police officer and paramedic that went beyond the call of duty.
Live Oak Police Officer Thomas Faller and Suwannee County Firefighter/Paramedic Shawn Hillengas arrived on the crash scene shortly after 3 a.m. on March 3. Adrienne Linton, the driver of a 1987 Chevrolet sedan, had just hit two power poles on SR 51. Electrical wires lay on and around the vehicle, and it was dark.
