KNOX COUNTY, Ind. - A southwest-Indiana man involved in a scooter crash was saved by the quick actions of a trooper this week, Indiana State Police (ISP) confirmed.
ISP said just before 10:30 p.m. Monday, ISP Trooper William Campbell was responding to a motor scooter crash in the 1900 block of College Avenue in Vincennes.
Campbell arrived to find Arthur Johnson, 18, of Vincennes, on the ground and unconscious. Campbell said he was not breathing, and did not have a pulse.
ISP said Campbell performed CPR on Johnson, and a short time later Johnson began breathing again. Once emergency crews arrived they continued to care for Johnson and took him to Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes. He was later airlifted to St. Mary's Hospital in Evansville.
Investigators said Johnson had been riding his 2012 Tao Tao scooter south on College Avenue when (for unknown reasons) he lost control. When the scooter crashed and fell on its side, ISP said Johnson hit his head and lost consciousness, and wasn't wearing a helmet. That's where Trooper Campbell found him and proceeded to possibly save his life.
