A native of Vandalia and currently a Trooper with the Missouri State Highway Patrol is set to receive a lifesaving award from the agency.
Trooper Brock A. Teague responded to an accident on June 13th of last year and found a vehicle engulfed in flames.
He and a St. Louis County officer approached the vehicle with fire extinguishers and heard a cry for help.
Teague broke the rear window of the vehicle and pulled the man to safety.
The man was not injured and declined medical attention.
The awards ceremony will be held at 10:00 Saturday morning via Facebook Live on facebook.com/motrooper.
