Tinsley (second from the right), reportedly saved a man from a burning car Friday morning.
A Hopkinsville Police Officer saved the life of a man in Muhlenberg County this morning who would have likely died in one of the worst ways imaginable.
Hopkinsville Police Officer Shannan White-Tinsley was on her way to work on KY 189 when she witnessed a head-on collision and told HPD Sgt. Scott Mayes that the victim was passed out in a burning car when she stopped.
Scanner traffic indicated the vehicle was fully involved in flames when local first responders arrived, but Sgt. Mayes says Officer Tinsley had already pulled the victim from the wreckage.
One of the injured in the wreck was taken by helicopter to an area hospital, while at least one other was taken to Muhlenberg Community Hospital. Kentucky State Police will be releasing details.
